Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was recently appointed as the interim chief selector of the men’s team.

While some former players are congratulating Afridi on getting the new responsibility, but his fellow spin bowler Danish Kaneria has criticized him.

Danish Kaneria made fun of Shahid Afridi –

In fact, Najam Sethi has taken over the reins of the board after Rameez Raja was sacked from the post of Pakistan Cricket Board President recently. As soon as he arrived, he handed over the responsibility of Chief Selector to Shahid Afridi. Recently, Danish Kaneria shared a post regarding this and criticized this decision.

Sharing a picture of Afridi’s ball tampering, Danish wrote – “Chief Selector” and together he shared a laughing emoji. Please tell that Afridi did ball tampering against Australia in the year 2010, after which he was banned for 2 years. 

There is an old dispute between the two –

Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria often raises questions about religious discrimination in the Pakistani team. He also accused Shahid Afridi of religious discrimination. Not only this, Kaneria tauntingly blamed Afridi (Shahid Afridi) for not being able to do much in his career.

In an interview Kaneria even called Afridi a liar, Danish had said that Afridi ill-treats him because he plays for Pakistan being a Hindu.

However, this is Kaneria’s personal opinion, because Afridi has taken over this responsibility two days ago and it will be known in the coming times how beneficial he proves to be for Pakistan cricket? After assuming the responsibility, he had said that he would help Babar Azam to become the best captain in the world.
