Shaheen Shah Afridi Faces Possible Ban from Crucial Matches After Misconduct

In a stunning turn of events, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is reportedly gearing up to take severe action against star bowler Shaheen Afridi for alleged misconduct during the recent T20 World Cup. Sources close to the PCB indicate that Afridi could potentially be sidelined from the upcoming critical series against Bangladesh as disciplinary measures loom large.
According to insider reports, the PCB is contemplating disciplinary actions against two to three other players amid growing discontent following Pakistan’s lackluster performance in the World Cup. Sources hint that promising domestic talents might replace the embattled players in the upcoming Bangladesh series.
The decision comes amidst a backdrop of turmoil within the team, highlighted during recent meetings with PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi. Coaches have reportedly accused senior players, including Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq, of influencing team selection unfairly, leading to a rift within the squad. Allegations surfaced that certain favored players failed to deliver on the field, sparking further controversy.
Shaheen Afridi’s alleged misconduct towards team management and coaches during crucial matches has raised eyebrows, with the PCB initiating an investigation into why no immediate action was taken at the time. Sources reveal that Afridi’s behavior has been a focal point of the ongoing probe, amidst claims of factionalism and unprofessional conduct among team members.
While Afridi has maintained silence on the matter, Wahab Riaz took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to refute accusations of undue influence, dismissing claims that he pressured selectors. The PCB’s recent decision to remove Riaz and Razzaq from selection committees for both men’s and women’s teams underscores the gravity of the situation, signaling a shake-up within the cricketing hierarchy.
Stay tuned as this unfolding saga continues to grip the cricketing world, with questions lingering over Afridi’s future and the integrity of Pakistan’s national team management.
