Former Pakistan skipper and one of the most popular cricketers in the country, Shahid Afridi has recently launched his autobiography ‘The Game Changer’ which has created a buzz among cricket the fans in Pakistan.
Among many things, the all-rounder addressed his relationship with former skipper Javed Miandad which has started a new controversy.
Afridi has revealed that the legendary batsman did not want him to be in the side during Pakistan’s tour of India in 1999 and he only got selected due to the pressure created by Wasim Akram, the second most senior player in the team at that time.
However, Afridi claims that he was not allowed to practice with the team the day before the Chennai Test and he had to practice with a stringed ball alone.
Furthermore, he also revealed that Miandad asked him to say nice things about him in the post-match presentation after Afridi had scored a match-winning 141 in the 2nd innings.
