The former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi is renowned for making controversial statements. Afridi has yet again made a controversial statement by saying that the Taliban have come with a ‘positive mind’. Taliban militants recently seized control of Afghanistan and the country is under a lot of distress.
“Taliban have come with a very positive mind. They’re allowing ladies to work. And I believe the Taliban like cricket a lot. Taliban is giving jobs to ladies, supporting cricket, and the cricket series against Pakistan as well. Taliban is very positive towards cricket,” Afridi told the media in Pakistan on Monday as reported by DNA

Shahid Afridi has been giving a lot of anti-India speeches lately. Many feel that the former cricketer is looking for a career in politics. Hence, he is making such comments. Afridi made a huge controversy last year by bad-mouthing the Indian PM Narendra Modi.
PSL 2022 might be the last for Shahid Afridi
Shahid Afridi has hinted about retiring from Pakistan’s own cricket League, PSL. In his PSL career, Shahid has represented Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, and Multan Sultans. However, he wishes to bid adieu to the game after playing for Quetta Gladiators.
“Maybe this will end up being my last PSL. I would like to play for Quetta Gladiators this season, provided Multan allows me to leave. If Nadeem Omar and Quetta’s owners want to have me, I would love to represent them,” Afridi was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.
Shahid Afridi’s current PSL franchise Multan Sultans won the PSL this year by beating Peshawar Zalmi in the finals. However, Shahid Afridi couldn’t take part in the tournament due to injury.
Afridi is currently one of the most successful all-rounders in the history of the PSL. In the 50 matches that he has featured in, Afridi has scored 465 runs and picked up 44 wickets. In the Pakistan Super League, Afridi’s strike rate of 153.46 is the third best after that of Kieron Pollard (166.24) and Luke Ronchi (166.12) for batters who have played a minimum of 30 innings.
