PCB to honour Shahid Afridi, Saeed Ajmal

AFRIDI AJMAL

LAHORE: Pakistan Super League (PSL) Chairman Najam Sethi said that Pakistan Cricket Board would honour star all-rounder Shahid Afridi and discarded spinner Saeed Ajmal in fitting sendoff.

Responding to a tweet on micro-blogging website, Twitter, Sethi revealed that he would meet the two cricketers and discuss this with them next week.

Reports say PCB is keen to give a graceful farewell to Afridi by allowing him a chance to feature in one of the three T20 Internationals scheduled against the West Indies later this month in the UAE.

Though the PCB is pondering over the proposal forwarded by the explosive all-rounder, it is concerned about the possible outcome in case it decides to arrange a farewell game for the veteran player.

Afridi had backtracked from his commitment to retire after the 2016 World T20. In the mega event, Pakistan failed to produce any worthwhile show and Afridi was criticized by former players for his poor captaincy during crucial stages of the lost matches.

Despite facing the strong backlash however, Afridi, whose individual performance both with bat and ball has been continuously waning in recent years, made a highly disturbing statement post-World T20 that he wanted to continue playing for Pakistan.

However, the new national selection committee headed by Inzamam-ul-Haq overlooking Afridi’s statement decided not to pick him for the one-off T20 against England held in Manchester last week.

The all-rounder was then also axed for the three-match T20 rubber against the West Indies starting on Sept 23. – SAMAA
