New Delhi: Shahid Afridi, the former captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team, retired from international cricket in the year 2017, but he always likes to be in the limelight. Afridi’s statements are sometimes so sharp that they become trouble for him only.
Afridi’s ‘Taliban love’
Love for Taliban has awakened in Shahid Afridi’s heart, he has publicly praised this organization. They claim that in Afghanistan, women will be allowed to do whatever they want and cricket will also benefit.
‘Taliban gave freedom to women’
Shahid Afridi told the media, ‘Taliban has come with a very positive frame of mind, we did not see these things before, the issue is, now things are going towards a lot of positivity. Ladies are allowed to work, politics and other jobs are allowed. They support the critics, they are supporting cricket. I think he likes cricket a lot.

Fans got angry
This statement of Shahid Afridi has created a ruckus, along with India, the people of Pakistan have also fiercely classed this former all-rounder. One user even advised Afridi to make him the prime minister of the Taliban.
I know 2 cricketers in India who would love to take part in TPL – Taliban Premier League and that too as a “charity” for this positive minded Afridi. https://t.co/ZORxjj3xPm
