He was a cricketer, and good at his job. But then he committed the ultimate sin and stood against other cricketers – gone bad. Cricketers who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw hunting outlaws, a bounty hunter – a RENEGADE!
I have no idea if Afridi has ever stood up against corrupt players, or if the woman he loved was killed by him, but he’s a renegade, mostly by accident.
He needs to be protected, supported and cherished as the mad man he is.
So when he needs us, we should step up.
It seems that Pakistan is the only cricket nation in the world cup that hasn’t decided on a captain yet.
With Ijaz Butt involved you sort of expect him to wait until the first game is over and then make a decision.
Apparently the players, sponsors and management want Afridi.
Mahzeer Majeed and the PCB wants anyone but Afridi.
So it’s a tough choice.
Do you trust the players who have to go out on the field with him, the management team who have to plan to win the world cup with him and the sponsors who should have no say but I’m using in my argument because they are probably smarter than Ijaz Butt.
Or do you trust the PCB, the KAOS of cricket administrations and the man who recently said to me, “and you have seen the whole footage have u? The complete unedited version to make your statement… no I thought not.”
Support Afridi, use your social media thingies, tell a friend, tattoo his name on BUtt’s head, but get it done, because even one man against the world, needs some friends.
Here are highlights of Afridi to remind you what a great he is.
