Shahid Afridi will not lead Pakistan in Future | Afridi will no longer lead Pakistan
Shahid Afridi will not lead Pakistan in Future:The Pakistan Cricket Board chief says World Cup captain Shahid Afridi will not lead Pakistan in future. Ijaz Butt reiterated to Geo Super television on Thursday that it is his constitutional right to appoint the captain before every single series.
However, the ICC has recommended to the PCB that Butt lose the privilege to improve the team.
Afridi, one of Pakistan’s greatest limited-overs players, was dumped as captain by Butt in May after beating West Indies in the Caribbean, prompting his international retirement and an outburst against Butt and the PCB for making captaincy an issue this year.
Afridi took the PCB to court to reissue his clearance to play overseas, and dropped the case after agreeing to meet Butt, plead guilty to misconduct and a fine of 4.5 million rupees ($52 000). Afridi got his clearance. Butt says a former provincial governor and former prime minister rang him to urge clearance be given to Afridi, but he says he wasn’t pressured.
