Cricket star Shahid Afridi was felicitated by his cousin Javed Afridi for being nominated as a ‘Governor of Sindh.’

As expected, Javed Afridi’s congratulatory tweet went viral, drawing hundreds of retweets and likes from cricket fans.

But their jubilation turned sour some 40 minutes later when Javed Afridi posted a second Tweet, clarifying his message was meant for another Shahid. But the owner of PSL team Peshawar Zalmi did not explain who the other Shahid was.

The post of Sindh governor fell vacant after the demise of Justice (retd.) Saeed uz Zaman Siddiqui on Wednesday, only two months after taking charge.

Senator Mushahidullah, Senator Nehal Hashmi and Muhammad Zubair are being considered as strong contenders for the post.
