Internet Desk: Netizens are angry with former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi. Critics say the IPL is rotting because of that. Speaking to media on the sidelines of Pakistan’s recent 3-match ODI series win over South Africa, Afridi criticized the IPL. Afridi blamed the South African team for releasing their players for the IPL as the one-sided series continued. He believes it will hurt international cricket. He suggested that the National Cricket Boards reconsider such decisions. To this end, he posted on Twitter. ‘On the one hand, while the series is going on, on the other hand, the release of CSA players for the IPL has come as a surprise. It is really sad that the T20 leagues are influencing international cricket in this way. The National Cricket Boards need to reconsider such decisions, ”he said in the post.
Netizens were incensed by Afridi’s comments. Afridi has been making similar criticisms since Pakistan is not playing in the IPL, saying that if they were playing too, they would have been here before South Africa. Afridi has been widely criticized for being angry over the T20 leagues as the IPL unfolds, but has also been criticized for forgetting that he played in the Pakistan Premier League.
