At present, Shaheen Shah Afridi, one of the most dangerous fast bowlers in the world, was asked whether he would ever be seen playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL)? He answered it very accurately. Pakistani players were banned from participating in IPL since 2008. Apart from Pakistan, legendary cricketers from all over the world take part in this T20 league with great enthusiasm.
Geo News journalist Arfa Firoz Jake wrote on Twitter, ‘When Afridi was asked if he would ever be seen playing in the IPL? In response, he said- It is a matter of greatest pride for any cricketer that he plays for his country. So my priority has always been to play for Pakistan. Playing in all three formats for my country and Pakistan Super League is enough for me at the moment.
Shaheen Shah Afridi, who debuted in international cricket in 2018, has so far represented Pakistan in 24 Tests, 30 ODIs, and 40 T20 Internationals. Afridi has 95 Test wickets, 59 ODI wickets, and 47 T20 International wickets. Under Shaheen Shah Afridi's captaincy, Lahore Qalandars won the Pakistan Super League this year.
