The Pakistan Cricket Board have confirmed that they will be looking into comments made by limited overs skipper Shahid Afridi regarding coach Waqar Younis.
On his departure from the Caribbean following the conclusion of the five-match ODI series against the West Indies which Pakistan won three-two, Afridi aired his frustration at the team’s selection process.
“Although the differences with the coach are not such which could not be solved… I must say that everyone should do his job and need not interfere in other’s work,” he told reporters.
The PCB released a statement on Monday indicating that the all-rounder’s comments would be investigated.
“It is a violation of Code of Conduct on part of Mr Afridi and an explanation has been sought from him for the reasons to make such statements publicly,” read the statement.
“PCB will take appropriate action after submission of the tour-report at the conclusion of the tour.”
The root of the rift between Afridi and Younis is believed to revolve around Afridi’s assertion that he, not Younis, should have the final say regarding the selection of the team. Cricket365
