World Cup-winning former Australia opener Mark Waugh was asked to pick the first five players in a World T20I XI in the buildup to the T20 World Cup, and the list had an Indian and a Pakistan bowler
Ricky Ponting made some bold calls while trying to decide who will be more impactful in the 2022 T20 World Cup - Jasprit Bumrah or Shaheen Afridi
In his first ever T20I, against India, pacer Naseem Shah took the wickets of KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja. Overall he took seven wickets in five matches at the Asia Cup
Notably, Shaheen toured with the team for the ODI series against Netherlands. He was then ruled out of the Asia Cup, but accompanied the team, as a part of his rehab, for the tournament.
PCB chief Ramiz Raja said that it is "unthinkable" that the board would "disown" Shaheen Afridi amid Shahid Afridi's claims that the pacer had to pay for his own rehabilitation and stay in England.
Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has now reacted to the statement given by Shahid Afridi, where he said that pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is paying for his own rehabilitation in England
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a clarification, saying the board will always be responsible for arranging medical care for all their players.
Former Pakistan cricket team captain Shahid Afridi has said that the young pacer is paying for his own rehabilitation in England.
Fakhar Zaman, who had a rather poor Asia Cup, has been relegated to the reserves list. Test opener Shan Masood has been named in the squad along with the likes of Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan, Asif Ali, Khushdil Shah and others.
After Pakistan's victory over India in the Super 4 stage of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 on Sunday, pacers Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf interacted with Shaheen, who is currently in London.
