Srinagar: Amid lot of uncertainty surrounding the Pakistan Cricket Team captaincy, pacer Shaheen Afridi is considering to step down from T20I caotaincy himself.

Shaheen was appointed as T20I skipper after Babar Azam’s resignation post the disappointing 2023 ODI World Cup campaign in India in October-November.

A report has quoted source close to Shaheen saying that the fast bowler is disappointed by the lack of communication from Mohsin Naqvi, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman, and the national selectors regarding future captaincy plans. Notably, after he took over the leadership role, Pakistan suffered a 4-1 series defeat against New Zealand.

“Shaheen is rightly upset as being the national T20 captain he expected that even if the board/selectors wanted to remove him they have the decency to also inform him for the reasons behind this and keep him in the loop about everything,” Hindustan Times quoted source.

“Shaheen believes that if the Board wants to remove him they should have informed him by now as he is even willing to step down himself. In fact now he has been advised by some of his close ones to do this and step away from all the chaos and confusion being caused by the Board,” the source added.

There are reports that PCB has offered captaincy role to Babar Azam again but the batter is little reluctant in accepting the offer.
