Shaheen Shah Afridi proved Shahid Afridi wrong

Shaheen Shah Afridi proved veteran all-rounder Shahid Afridi wrong by leading Lahore Qalandars to their first PSL triumph.

The Shaheen-led Qalandars put on a clinic and did not disappoint their fans, capturing their first PSL title in seven editions.

The Qalandars management chose the 21-year-old as captain ahead of the PSL, but Shahid objected.

In order to focus on his bowling, I urged Shaheen to wait a year or two before accepting captaincy. The Afridi in him didn’t listen to me,” Afridi told a private TV channel.

“Having said that, I’m pleased he’s taken on this duty and hope he proves me wrong,” added the former skipper.

He not only became the youngest skipper to win a PSL franchise, but he also took the most wickets in the current season with 20 and three in the final.

After the match, Afridi hailed Shaheen on Twitter, calling him a champion.
