Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Yousuf comment on the latest Shoaib Akhtar, PCB case

Former teammates and national team skippers Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Yousaf have advised legendary pacer Shoaib Akhtar and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi to peacefully end their latest conflict.

Rizvi has issued a Rs.100 million notice to Akhtar for the speedsters derogatory remarks regarding the Umar Akmal case. Rizvi asked Akhtar to retract his statement while tendering an unconditional apology.

Akhtar, while speaking on a local news channel and his YouTube channel on Tuesday, had accused Rizvi of holding a personal grudge against Pakistan cricketers, after the board announced a three-year ban on middle-order batsman Akmal.

Shahid Afridi offered to mediate between Akhtar and Rizvi on the matter.

Batting veteran Mohammad Yousuf shared thoughts similar to Afridi’s, while adding that such things will have a negative impact on Pakistan cricket.

“There is no doubt that Shoaib Akhtar is Pakistan’s star player. I hope him and Taffazul Rizvi can sort out their issues amicably,” said Yousaf.

“Such things will take Pakistan cricket in the wrong direction while also affecting younger players.” he added.
