The third T20 match between Pakistan and England will be played in Karachi today.
Pakistan’s fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has given a controversial statement on the partnership of captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. The 22-year-old bowler has called Babar and Rizwan selfish batsmen. Not only this, Afridi has accused both the openers of deliberately slow batting.
The young bowler wrote in a social post on Thursday night- ‘I think it’s time to get rid of captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Both are such selfish players. If played properly, the match would have ended in 15 overs. But, he took it till the last over. So let’s start this one movement. Isn’t it’
However, Shaheen did this post in a witty tone. He disclosed this in the last line. In the last line of the post, Shaheen wrote – ‘Proud of this wonderful Pakistani team.’ Various comments from social media fans started pouring in on the post.
