PCB issues show cause notice to Shahid Afridi
The Pakistan Cricket Board has issued a show cause notice to flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi for speaking to the media after returning from Dhaka recently after taking part in the World T20 tournament.
Afridi told the media at the airport that the Pakistan team had not shown an aggressive mindset in the match against the West Indies which led to their ouster from the tournament before the semi-finals.
He also said that if offered the captaincy he was ready to take up the challenge for the sake of the nation and team. One of the sources said that Afridi had been asked to explain why he spoke to the media when only the captain and team officials were told to do so after the return.
Afridi, in his response, has apparently said he had never run after the captaincy and had only responded to a question put forward by a media person.
