Shahid Afridi accidentally confirmed that Shan Masood will be the captain of Multan Sultans in the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). While the other five PSL franchises have already announced who will be leading their respective sides, a cloud of uncertainty hangs over the Sultans skipper.
However, Afridi ended the mystery by publicly acknowledging the Sultans’ decision to appoint Masood as their captain. Afridi’s premature announcement spoiled the surprise a day before the franchise owner Ali Tareen made the statement.
Minutes later, Tareen thanked Afridi for accepting the decision but also maintained that the official announcement would be made in the future soon. Afridi then acknowledged his over-eagerness and apologized to Tareen.
