Miandad always hungry for money: Shahid Afridi
Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has on Sunday opened a new Pandora’s Box, alleging another former Pakistan great Javed Miandad of being money-hungry.
Holding a press conference, Shahid Afridi said that Javed Miandad was one of the greatest players and shouldn’t be saying petty things. He said that this was the only difference between Miandad and former Pakistan legend Imran Khan.
Talking about the farewell match, Afridi said that he didn’t care whether he’d be played the farewell match or not. “Allah has given me respect and it can’t be taken away whether I play the farewell match or not”, he said.
Reacting to Afridi’s statement, Miandad said that he could testify Afridi had sold out matches. “These people are fixers”, he said. He added that Afridi’s market was no more and nobody cared about him anymore. “The world knows me as well as Afridi”.
Javed said that Afridi was like a kid to him, and added that Imran Khan had always praised him. He added that Afridi could have made it to the team, had he performed. “His attitude towards the seniors is beyond comprehension. Now the people will decide whether Afridi should be selected for the team or not”, he said.
Can testify Afridi sold matches, he’s a fixer: Miandad
Former Pakistan legend Javed Miandad has on Sunday said that he could testify that former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi had sold matches.
In response to Afridi’s statement that Miandad had always been hungry for money, Miandad said that Afridi was a fixer.
During a press conference, a reporter asked Shahid Afridi if he had anything to say about Javed Miandad’s suggestion not to give Afridi a farewell match. Afridi responded saying that Javed Miandad shouldn’t have said such a petty thing. “This is the difference between Javed Miandad and Imran Khan”, he said.
Miandad was furious about the remark, responding to it by alleging Afridi of being a match-fixer. He said that the world knew him and Imran Khan both. He said that Imran Khan had always said nice things about him. He confirmed that he had suggested the board not to give Afridi a farewell match.
Talking to Dunya News exclusively, Miandad said that he was against giving anyone an international match just for the sake of a farewell. He said that it was honourable for any cricketer to leave cricket at the right time. He responded to Afridi’s allegation of being money-hungry by saying that he could have continued to play cricket, had he been hungry for money.
