The former all-rounder stated that greats like Inzamam-ul-Haq, Younis Khan and Muhammad Yousuf can play their part in shaping and polishing the young guns of the country. Afridi also shared his two cents on the Waqar Younis and Muhammad Amir’s issue.
The former skipper said that this isn’t a new problem in Pakistan cricket. He suggested that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), should talk to the disgruntled players, only then such issues can be prevented.
Shahid Khan Afridi advised the cricket board to sit and talk with Amir to resolve this issue as he still has cricket left in him.
