Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi on Friday snubbed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and specifically Pakistan Super League Chairman Najam Sethi in relation to the board offering to give him a proper farewell.
In a number of tweets, the former Pakistan T20 captain thanked Sethi for offering to give him a farewell after he announced his retirement earlier this year, but also added that due to his other commitments he won’t be able to attend the farewell even if the PCB plan to give it to him.
Then the flamboyant all-rounder and sometimes a controversial figure of world cricket, Afridi, also said that he is happy to see Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and veteran batsman Younus Khan being given a proper farewell. [Read also: Dejected Shakib says he is on a holiday]
“Thank you for the meeting and farewell offers @najamsethi. Unfortunately due to my commitments I won’t be able to take them. My desire was to set a new trend. I’m very happy that Misbah & Younis are getting proper farewells. I hope this trend will continue in future,” he tweeted.
The all-rounder was dropped from the Pakistan T20 squad after the ICC World T20 2016 in India last year. Afridi had recently said he wanted to retire on a high note but had never requested PCB to give him a farewell series before retiring from the game
