KARACHI: Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi and fast bowler Wahab Riaz have signed with English county season in May 2015; on the other hand Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shaharyar Khan announced to have Zimbabwe tour of Pakistan in the same month.
Both the players have picked by the (PCB) for Bangladesh tour, starting from 17 April and hopefully, they will surely make their place in the Zimbabwe tour of Pakistan’s squad in May.
However, Shahid Afridi will only represents Pakistan in Twenty20’s as a captain. A brilliant spell by Wahab Riaz in the Cricket World Cup 2015 quarter final match against Australia has made his place in the Surrey county cricket club, England.
Whereas, boom boom Afridi has picked for Northamptonshire. Shahid Afridi has always been considered as one of the greatest cricketers of all time.
He is known for his aggressive batting style and previously held the record for the fastest ODI century in 37 deliveries. Now, it would be an individual decision for both the players whether to play for Pakistan which gave them fame and respect or to play for English dollars.
However, Shahid Afridi and Wahab Riaz should consider their own country first as compared to others.
