The controversy between Pakistan Cricket Board and their former players is always a trend in the news headlines. Recently PCB announced the team for T20 World Cup 2022, and they told the big name Shaheen Shah Afridi is fit and will participate in T20 World Cup 2022. Shaheen Shah Afridi was out from Asia Cup 2022 due to a knee injury, and with the news of his selection, Pakistan’s fans are excited to see him again in the upcoming World Cup. Now, he is in a rehabilitation center in London and will join the team directly in Australia.
After the squad selection of Pakistan cricket, former Pakistani All-rounder Shahid Afridi makes huge allegation against the Pakistan Cricket Board. According to Afridi, Pakistan Cricket Board is not taking care of their star bowler in recovering from injury, and Shaheen Shah Afridi is taking care of all his medical expenses. Shahid Afridi said, “Shaheen Afridi paid himself for the tickets of England to continue his rehabilitation. He’s paying himself for the stay too”.
After this huge accusation, Pakistani legend Wasim Akram slammed PCB for this type of nonsense work. Akram said that this is serious issue as, he is the most important asset of our team, and if we can not take care of him then who else we will handle properly. “Yeh bohot shocking hai. He is one of our top performer…he is box-office. Aur agar yeh ladke ko hum nehin dekhenge, aur yeh sach he, toh yeh zyati he. He should have straightaway been sent to the best knee surgeon in the world. But woh akela kar raha he yeh sab…As I said I’m still shocked about it.” said Akram.\
If Afridi claim is true then this is truly a schooling news for world cricket fraternity. If a board can’t bear out the expenses of their players from whom, they generate large revenue then it’s disrespectful behavior form cricket board towards their players.
