Shahid Afridi was missing from action in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) clash between Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators. As the home side romped to another win to strengthen their top position on the points table, questions were posed over the exclusion of star all-rounder Afridi.
Tackling the concerns regarding this heated topic of discussion, Sultans experienced campaigner Imran Tahir praised Afridi’s immense value to the team and confirmed he wasn’t dropped from the team but rather rested to nurse his workload management.
"If Shahid Afridi is ever dropped from this side, then I will go back home. He is a legend and on the field he is like a cheetah and I don't think he can be dropped from any team,” the veteran leggie told reporters asking him to clarify the matter.
