Shaheen Not Happy in Captaincy Dispute, Leaves Army Training Camp Midway
Shaheen Not Happy in Captaincy Dispute

A lot is going on in Pakistan Cricket that is open to all but even bigger changes are now becoming clear amid the Captaincy issue. The former T20 Captain of Pakistan Shaheen Shah has left the training camp and has departed to his home in Peshawar.

After the pitiful New Zealand tour in the T20 World Cup year, the skipper Shaheen Shah was trolled a lot by Pakistan Cricket fans across the globe. The rumors were around that Babar might replace him after the season of PSL and the same happened.

The sources claim that instead of agreeing on a single logic, the selection committee members offered a variety of justifications for Shaheen’s replacement as captain. The sources stated that the selection committee has also been in touch with the pacer over the issue.

It was pretty clear that the left-arm pacer wasn’t too happy with the decision. He also posted a cryptic post quoting “Never ever put me in a position where I have to show you how cruel and ruthless I can be. Don’t test my patience. Because I might be the kindest and sweetest person you’ve ever met, but once I reach my limit, you’ll see me do the things that no one thought I was capable of doing.”

Shaheen Left the Training Camp

Today is his twenty-fourth birthday, and the left-arm pacer departed the camp after losing his place as the T20I captain. However, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials have stressed that Afridi left with legal authorization and not out of rage, but the fact that he left the team camp without injury or other major issues tells a different story.

Afridi feels that he was wrongfully stripped of the captaincy, but he has stated that he is ready to move on from the experience. The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Asim Munir, is hosting the iftar supper on April 8th, and he will be joining the team later.
