Shahid Afridi criticised the national selectors for resting six senior players, including skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, for the upcoming ODI series against Australia, saying a good outing would have boosted their confidence ahead of the World Cup.
Shahid Afridi backed Prime Minister Imran Khan's statement in the wake of the Pulwama attack and blasted the IMG-Reliance for pulling out from the production of the fourth season of Pakistan Super League (PSL), saying that educated people do not behave in such a manner.
Rohit Paudel hit 55 off 58 balls against UAE, to become the youngest male player in history to bring up an international half-century. In the process, he also broke Sachin Tendulkar's as well as Shahid Afridi's long-standing records.
“Pakistan is on the verge of financial bankruptcy and its crisis can be understood from the fact that it had to seek a bailout package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). When the IMF refused them, Pakistan had to beg before China,” said the editorial.
