Shahid Afridi Foundation logo to feature on Pakistan players’ kits

Pakistan will play three Tests and three Twenty20 series against England in August and September. But before such an important tour, the team has become sponsor-less. Because, the contract of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) with a soft drink company Pepsi has expired.

But before the upcoming series, the Pakistan team got a good news. The logo of the Shahid Afridi Foundation can be seen on the team’s jersey and other equipment. Founded by a former Pakistani captain, Shahid Afridi, the foundation has been widely acclaimed for standing by the poor and helpless people across Pakistan.

Afridi himself confirmed the news in a tweet. The Pakistani all-rounder tweeted, “We’re delighted that the @SAFoundationN logo will be featured on the Pakistan playing kits, since we are charity partners to @TheRealPCB. Thanking #WasimKhan & the PCB for their continued support & wishing our boys all the very best with the tour #HopeNotOut.”

The first Test between England and Pakistan will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester on August 5-9. The second and third matches will be played in Southampton on 13-17 and 21-25 of the same month. The T20 series will be played in Manchester on August 28, 30 and September 1.
