Shahid Afridi reveals why he left Peshawar Zalmi

Shahid Afridi has finally revealed that why he left Peshawar Zalmi.

He previously tweeted about parting ways with the team after two seasons with the team.

“There are a few personal things that I don’t want highlighted in the media,” said Afridi while talking to Saleem Safi in Geo News’ programme Jirga. “I saw Javed’s vision changing with time. I didn’t want to be a hindrance in his new goals and vision. I have a lot of commitments to my own foundation, so I wouldn’t be able to give my services completely to him also. There a lot of projects of my foundation that I need to set my focus on.”

On a question if the decision will affect the relationship that both Afridi’s families share, the 37-year-old said:

“These things don’t affect our families’ friendship and relation.”

“I wanted to take this decision after the PSL final but I had to fulfill a few commitments with Peshawar Zalmi so I delayed it a little. However, I did want to win the PSL with Peshawar Zalmi and we did that.”
