Shaheen Afridi Refuses To Become Vice Captain Of Pakistan Team

Shaheen Afridi, the former captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, has refused the vice-captaincy role of the Pakistan cricket team, which is recently offered to him by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Shaheen, a fast bowler, led Pakistan during a series against New Zealand in January. Unfortunately, the team’s performance was poor, and they lost 4-1 in the five-match series. Following this series, and after the Pakistan Super League (PSL), the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) brought back Babar Azam as the captain of the T20 team.

The PCB hoped that appointing Shaheen as vice-captain would bring stability to the team as they prepare for the T20 World Cup. However, Shaheen’s displeasure with how the PCB communicated the leadership changes led to his decision to decline the offer.

In November of the previous year, Babar Azam stepped down as captain in all formats after Pakistan’s disappointing performance at the ICC ODI World Cup in India.

Despite refusing the vice-captaincy, Shaheen remains a key player for Pakistan. Known for his speed and ability to swing the ball, Shaheen is vital to the team’s success in all formats of the game. His decision to focus solely on his bowling indicates his commitment to his primary role as a bowler.
