Afridi had recently parted ways with Peshawar Zalmi, the PSL franchise he’d played for the 2 seasons of this championship. Last month, Afridi chose Twitter to make public his choice, stating that he was finishing his solutions using Peshawar Zalmi, because of ‘personal factors.’
“I am declaring my end of support as president and participant of Peshawar Zalmi Team because of my private motives,” he wrote. But earlier this month, Afridi blamed Peshawar Zalmi proprietor Javed Afridi’s shifting vision for leaving the group.
