“We want to play together, there’s no time for arguments,” said Shaheen Afridi

Fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi of Pakistan has flatly rejected that there is any kind of dissatisfaction or division among the team due to a leadership problem.

Shaheen, the team’s captain for only one series before being fired, has been replaced by Babar Azam as the head coach of the national team.

Shaheen said on Friday on the PCB podcast that winning any significant tournament is difficult without togetherness.

He did, however, note that “minor disagreements” occur on every team and should not be taken too seriously. Small arguments arise sometimes in every household, even among brothers. However, our squad doesn’t have anything similar,” Afridi said.

“We listen to our players as well as they listen to each other.” “It is our duty to play cricket and make our country happy,” he said.

He maintained that every player understood his responsibility to play with purpose, unity, and concentration, in addition to avoiding any internal disputes that would impair their performance. “We want to play as a team, therefore now is not the time for disagreements or conflicts. Now is the moment for everyone to have the same understanding,” he said.

On June 6, Pakistan will play the USA in the first match of the T20 World Cup.

In addition, the left-arm pacer allayed worries about his workload, form, and health, acknowledging that he was pleased with his bowling in Ireland and the manner the squad overcame an early loss to win the series. “I am enjoying my spells and bowling with rhythm and pace.” Sadly, in one match or another, every bowler in T20 cricket these days has a rough day. That’s the nature of the problems bowlers are facing these days,” he said.
