Shahid Afridi Proposes Idea of Two Pakistan Teams For Men’s Side

Seeking to improve bench strength, Pakistan’s newly-appointed interim chief selector, Shahid Afridi, said that he wants to create two teams for the men’s national side.

Speaking to media persons in Karachi, the former captain and flamboyant all-rounder of his era, Shahid Afridi, said he wants to implement this idea before his tenure ends.

During the press conference, Afridi also highlighted a “communication gap” as one of the major issues the Pakistan cricket team is facing, insisting that the chief selector should be in direct contact with individual players to be aware of their positions properly.

Afridi said that when he spoke to Fakhar Zaman and Haris Sohail personally, he got a clear picture of the players. The pair have been added to Pakistan’s likely three-match ODI series against New Zealand.

“The major problem that I’ve observed here is the communication gap among management, doctors, and the selection committee. It is important for a chief selector—be it me or someone else—to stay in direct contact with players,” he said.
