Former Pakistani Skipper Shahid Afridi lashes out at Indian PM Narendra Modi being the main culprit
ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistani Skipper Shahid Afridi lashes out at Indian PM Narendra Modi being the main culprit.
Former Pakistan captain, Shahid Afridi, has accused Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being the culprit behind the turbulent relations between Pakistan and India.
During an interview with *Cricket Pakistan link*, the hard-hitting batsman said that I do not see bilateral series between Pakistan and India until Modi is in power.
The 45-years old stated:
I think we will not get a response from India until Modi is in power. We have all understood his mindset now.
His mindset can only take you towards negativity. That one man can ruin the relationship between the two countries which the people on both sides are against.
Shahid Afridi praised the PCB for organizing the entire PSL tournament in Pakistan for the first time and said:
The PSL 5 coming to Pakistan is very big for me. We could see when Sri Lanka, Bangladesh came and the World XI came that cricket would return to Pakistan. We were very hopeful for its return.
I would like to give the PCB and the management the credit of organizing the entire HBL PSL in Pakistan. This is a very big achievement. This will send a positive message to everyone about how much love the fans here have for cricket and have been missing it.
Afridi also urged PCB to increase the number of teams in PSL:
We should keep adding more franchises into the league. We should add a franchise after every two or three years. Cricket coming to Pakistan is great for sponsors.
I think they were waiting for this moment as well. FATA has a very big area and they should have a team as well. Punjab should have another team. Sindh should have another team. All these teams should come in with time.
