Misbah, Younis, Afridi await PCB’s promised farewell ceremony


LAHORE, August 07 (TNS): Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) claims of holding farewell events to honour legends Shahid Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan remain empty promises as Shehryar Khan has relinquished from PCB’s top spot.

Arguably, Pakistan’s most successful captain Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan bid farewell to gentleman game in May during West Indies tour. Likewise, Shahid Afridi called an end to international career during Pakistan Super League’s second installment. After facing extreme backlash from media, PCB’s top brass mulled to hold farewell ceremony.

Sources privy to PCB told our correspondent that Najam Sethi and his aides want to take credit for farewell event and, therefore, used delaying tactics during Shehryar’s tenure. A ceremony for above mentioned task is expected as early as Sethi would sworn in as PCB’s chairman.
