Web Desk: Former Pakistan Captain Shahid Afridi in his autobiography book ‘Game Changer’ has revealed never shared details which have left many cricketing fans in shock.
Game Changer’ that hit the stands on Thursday, April 30 has already gained popularity so far. In the book, Afridi also opened about his relationship with former Pakistan cricketer Waqar Younis.
Boom Boom Afridi wrote: “Waqar and I had a history, dating all the way back to his tiff with Wasim over the captaincy crown. He was a mediocre captain but a terrible coach, always micromanaging and getting in the way, trying to tell the captain – me – what to do… It was a natural clash and it was bound to happen.
The all-rounder has also criticised former captain Javed Miandad in his autobiography.
Miandad had developed a strong opinion against me… in fact, the day before I went to bat, Miandad didn’t even give me any net practice. So I had to practice on a stringed ball, alone, away from my teammates. That was the cloud of angst and embarrassment.
On the other hand, Javed Miandad has rejected the claims of Shahid Afridi. “Shahid Afridi has written what he wanted to write,” said Miandad.
In his autobiography, Afridi revealed that he was not 16 when he played his first one-day match. He was 19-year-old then.
Afridi also criticised Shoaib Malik in his book. Shoaib Malik was unfit to be made skipper when he was 25 since he didn’t listen to good advice.
