New Delhi. A day earlier, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had announced the names of its players for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 to be held in Australia. The board announced a 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 under the leadership of Babar Azam. The team announced by Pakistan for the T20 World Cup 2022 also saw the return of star fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi, who was ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 due to injury. However, in the meantime, Shahid Afridi, the former captain of Pakistan and one of the deadliest all-rounders in the world, has made such a disclosure about Shaheen Shah Afridi, due to which the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has come under the scanner.
What Shahid Afridi has revealed
Actually, Shaheen Shah Afridi was injured during the first Test match against Sri Lanka in Galle in July. Due to this injury, he could not be a part of the Asia Cup. After this Shaheen Shah Afridi went to London for the treatment of his knee injury, but it is surprising that this veteran player of the Pakistani team had to do his own treatment. Shahid Afridi helped him for this treatment.
“Shaheen Shah Afridi went to England on his own. He got his ticket by himself. I arranged a doctor for him and he contacted the doctor. PCB haven’t done anything for him” Shahid Afridi. @SAfridiOfficial @iShaheenAfridi #ShaheenShahAfridi #PakistanCricket #T20WorldCup2022 pic.twitter.com/KnQAqGqzYd

Pakistan Cricket Board did not get support
Talking about Shaheen Shah Afridi’s injury in a TV show, Shahid Afridi said, “Shaheen Shah Afridi went to England on his ticket. Stayed in England at my own expense, from here I arranged the doctor and there he himself contacted the doctor. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) did nothing in his treatment. Now this statement of former captain of Pakistan cricket team Shahid Afridi has created a sensation in the cricket world as well as how much concern the Pakistan Cricket Board is concerned about Pakistani players has also come to the fore.
Ticket to Australia!
