Afridi joins Qalandars as Icon Player for 3rd Edition of T10 League


Shahid Afridi has been signed on as the icon player for T10 League's new franchise Qalandars.

The former Pakistan captain previously served as the marquee player and captain of Pakhtoons across the last two T10 League seasons held in Sharjah but the franchise has now been discontinued.

He led Pakhtoons to the final of the tournament last year where his side were eventually defeated by Northern Warriors.

Afridi was previously linked with a coaching job for the Pakistan national team. However Afridi believes he isn't ready for the job yet.

“I don’t have the temperament to be a coach of a national team. Moreover, I am fit as ever so my focus is on playing cricket right now. I will try to give my best to the team."

“I would rather be interested in coaching young boys under 18 and 19. At the young age they need coaching as that is the time they need grooming. Like if I tell my story to a young aspiring cricketer how I braved the pressure situations in the tough games it means I am passing on my experience to them.

“Not only will they be motivated but they will also learn a lot of new things that will help them in becoming good cricketers.”
