Afridi says parted ways with Zalmi due to ‘change in owner’s vision’: HumSub.TV: Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has said that he parted ways from Pakistan Super League (PSL) outfit Peshawar Zalmi owned by Javed Afridi due to “a change in the latter’s vision for the team”.
Afridi, on March 25, tweeted his decision to part ways with Zalmi after playing two seasons for the side – first as the captain and second as a player after giving the leadership to West Indies’ two-time World T20 winning captain Darren Sammy.
“There are a few personal things that I don’t want highlighted in the media,” Afridi said while talking to Saleem Safi in Geo News’ programme Jirga. “I saw Javed’s vision changing with time. I didn’t want to be a hindrance in his new goals and vision. I have a lot of commitments to my own foundation, so I wouldn’t be able to give my services completely to him also. There a lot of projects of my foundation that I need to set my focus on.”
On a question if the decision will affect the relationship that both Afridi families share, the 37-year-old said: “These things don’t affect our families’ friendship and relation.”
Afridi, known as Boom Boom for his aggressive batting style, further said that the decision was delayed due to a few commitments he had with Zalmi. “I wanted to take this decision after the PSL final but I had to fulfill a few commitments with Peshawar Zalmi so I delayed it a little. However, I did want to win the PSL with Peshawar Zalmi and we did that.”
