“Shaheen led his team well throughout the event. Best of luck to both final teams! ” He wrote.
The Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars will square off on Sunday for the PSL 7 championship.
Shahid Afridi said in December that Shaheen Afridi didn’t listen to him when he told her not to take the leadership job.
Afridi had said during a segment on a private television channel: “I recommended Shaheen delay assuming the leadership for a year or two to allow him to concentrate on his bowling.” However, as an Afridi, he did not listen to me.
“Having said that, I’m glad he’s chosen to take this responsibility and hope he proves me wrong. ” As previously said by the former captain.
