Pakistani star cricketer Shahid Afridi has said that both Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Mohammad Amir are at fault after the latter decided to retire from international cricket on Thursday.
The star All-rounder said that PCB and Amir could have handled the situation better. “Both the management and Mohammad Amir are responsible. If the elders had not started this, the younger ones would not get a chance to speak.”
He further added to his statement,
“Why are they communicating through media? They should sit in a room and talk it out”
“Amir’s decision was also a bit harsh. There are challenges in life that every player faces. Strong and talented cricketers accept those challenges and make comeback with good performances,” he added.
He also said that playing for and representing Pakistan was a great honor and privilege rather than playing league cricket.
He also wondered at the prompt response from the PCB as Amir announced his retirement from international cricket.
“Very strange; it happened the same day,” he added.
