    PCB Chief spoke about Pakistan’s Great player’s Claims about Shaheen Afridi


    Ramiz Raja, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board, came out to refute Shahid Afridi’s claim that pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi had been “disowned” by the organization after he claimed that the player was paying for his own treatment in England and lodging expenses on his own dime. He referred to the situation as an “unfortunate dispute” and asserted that it is inconceivable that the PCB would fail to care for Shaheen. Shaheen, a member of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup roster, left the group in the United Arab Emirates to travel to England for medical attention and to recover from a knee injury he sustained during the Test series against Sri Lanka.

    “Tell me, how can someone even think that someone will disown Shaheen Afridi, and that too his parent body? This can’t happen. It’s beyond my understanding. And this is an unfortunate controversy,” Ramiz Raja said in an interview. When Rizwan fell ill during the World Cup, who took care of him? Our doctor’s panel stayed up all night to treat him, they got him fit and they ensured he played in the final (semi-final),” the PCB chief continued.

    “It could be that in this case, there was a lack of clarity. Because he had to leave quickly from Dubai, maybe there was some ticketing issue. Because he went where he had to go, but he didn’t like the place, so he went somewhere else,” Raja explained. “But I would like to make one thing clear. Our players are our biggest stakeholders. Ask anybody. What we are doing, no cricket board doesn’t do. And not just for players who play for the national team. First Class players, junior players as well,” he said.
