KARACHI – Making another political statement, Pakistan’s former skipper Shahid Afridi has said that he expected something different from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan.

Talking to newsmen in Karachi on Friday, he stated that PTI chairman Imran Khan should have focused more on Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province which PTI is administering currently.

Afridi went on to say that Imran should have done something extraordinary so that people should have said “We want a leader like this.”

He termed Imran Khan as the best in cricketing genre and clarified that there was a difference between his political personality and cricketing stint.

The star player claimed that he entered into sports primarily due to Imran Khan and added: “Only Imran can tell who pushed him to join politics.”


Afridi also opened up about the flaws in prevailing situation of cricket in the country and expressed that he was not surprised by the dismal performance of team in New Zealand and Australia.

‘We need people in PCB who can convince other international boards to visit Pakistan. Our team has also faced threats in Sri Lanka and India before, but we still toured these countries’ he said.
