Pissed Off With PCB, Shahid Afridi Vows Not To Ask Them To Give Him Warm Send-Off

Published on 27 December, 2016 at 10:18 pm By

There is a famous saying: “Keep smiling and one day life will be tired of upsetting you.” But in Shahid Afridi can pooh-pooh this adage.

The Pakistani cricket sensation has been asking for a farewell match from the PCB for a long time and his efforts have seemed to have gone in vain.

Inzamam Ul-Haq, in his capacity as chief selector, had reportedly convinced PCB to pick Afridi for T20 series against West Indies so that Afridi can have a befitting retirement announcement.



However, Najam Sethi had objected to the idea even though PCB chief Shaharyar Khan agreed with it. Sethi said that if Afridi has to be selected then he should be in the 15-men squad and not at the 16th position like Inzamam and Shaharyar had suggested.

So at the closing ceremony of a cricket match at Islamia College in Peshawar the swashbuckling all-rounder said:

I will not request PCB to give me a farewell match. I have earned enough respect on my own. I earn love from my fans and cricket-lovers. It matters to me the most.

Well, we hear you Afridi. You have played well and made your country and cricket world proud.
