Afridi questions Shan Masood’s selection as the ODI team’s vice-captain.

ODI team's vice-captain

Najam Sethi made the choice to make Shan Masood the vice-captain of the Pakistani side.

Shahid Afridi, a former interim chief selector, has made it plain that PCB was keen on keeping him on as chairman of the committee.

Shahid Afridi explained in an exclusive interview with a local media news station that he was unable to prolong his contract because of other obligations.

“The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was interested in extending my position as the team’s chief selector, but I also have charitable and other obligations. However, in the future, I want to work to support the growth of U19 cricket players “Shahid Afridi stated.

In addition, Afridi declared that Shan Masood’s recent selection as vice-captain of the ODI team against New Zealand was unjustified.

“Shan Masood shouldn’t have been selected as the ODI team’s vice-captain. “The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should have trusted the captain or chief selector; during the first two ODIs against New Zealand, neither Babar Azam nor I gave him a second thought,” remarked Afridi.

According to Shan Masood’s performances for Derbyshire, he “cannot be named as captain or vice-captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team.

When asked about three formats and three captains, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi responded, “Babar Azam’s captaincy, in my opinion, has a lot of opportunity for development. I think it would be better to name one captain for ODI and Test cricket and a different commander for T20s as opposed to three different leaders for the various game formats.”

With these admissions made by Shahid Afridi, it is evident that it was Najam Sethi, the chairman of the PCB Management Committee, and not Afridi or Babar Azam who made the decision to name Shan Masood the vice-captain of the team for the ODI against New Zealand.
