Gary Kirsten Report Reveals Misconduct Of Shaheen Afridi During the T20 World Cup

Pakistan’s early exit from the T20 World Cup 2024 has been attributed to internal conflicts within the team. A report submitted to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) by white-ball coach Gary Kirsten and Azhar Mahmood has unveiled details about the misconduct of star pacer Shaheen Afridi during the tournament.

According to the coach’s report, Afridi’s consistent misbehavior and refusal to follow the coaches’ directives significantly disrupted team harmony.

Kirsten and Mahmood highlighted that Shaheen Afridi frequently clashed with the coaching staff and disregarded their strategies and decisions. This led to a lack of cohesion and discipline, severely impacting the team’s performance.

The report further revealed that there was lobbying and grouping among the players, exacerbating the internal discontentment among players.

Senior team manager Wahab Riaz and manager Mansoor Rana were criticized for their inability to curb Afridi’s disruptive behavior. Despite witnessing these issues firsthand, they failed to intervene and restore order within the squad.

The PCB now faces the critical question of whether to take disciplinary action against Shaheen Afridi. The board might weigh the potential repercussions of penalizing a key player against the need to uphold discipline and unity within the team.

It remains to be seen what will be PCB’s response to this report, which has cast a shadow over Pakistan’s T20 World Cup campaign and raised serious concerns about the team’s internal dynamics.

  • Pakistan has produced a number of great players like India but if you compare the greats of india turned coaches or managers you will see a huge difference. Most indian greats have also been very successful as coach n support staff why because they were also great human beings. When they played as a player they not only earned money but also respect. Alk our greats such as miandad, imran, wasim, waqar, shoaib, inzimam, you name them they always exhibit hate, jealousy and prejudice against one another or to the new comers unlike indian greats who are most of the times keep themselves away from controversies. Shaheen afridi did all this just to creat rift in the team in order to become the Captain himself. He has complete support of shahid afridi who was himself an extremely controversial personality during his time. PCB must take a severe disciplinary action against shaheen so that in the future none of the player could initiate such division in the team again.

  • He should be penalised and must not be included in any format’s playing eleven until he realises he’s not bigger than the team. Shame on him.
    Pakistan cricket moved on and moved on well even after it’s top bowlers got banned in the past and this guy is not even the half of what them two had.
