Pakistan's lethal pacer and former skipper Shaheen Afridi is under controversy once again. This time, it's because he misbehaved with the head coach, Gary Kirsten, during Pakistan's Ireland-England tour. As per reports, strict action might be taken against the bowler for not maintaining decorum in the dressing room. Not only the coach, he misbehaved with the other support staff as well during the T20 World Cup 2024

"Shaheen misbehaved with the coaches and management during recent tours but no action was taken by the team managers on the pacer's inappropriate behaviour. Maintaining discipline in the team was the responsibility of the managers which is why it is being investigated why action was not taken against Shaheen despite misbehaving," said a source quoted by Geo News. 

The Pakistan team is under probe for lobbying and non-seriousness of the players during the World Cup. The coach and the support staff complained about the players to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), so they decided to put the players under probe. While the players' performances have decreased drastically, these upcoming controversies don't sound like a positive sign for the team. 

PCB sacks Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq from its selection committee 

After a flop show in the T20 World Cup 2024, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sacked the former players Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq from its selection committee. The team selection was clearly not good, as Pakistan couldn't even qualify for the Super 8 stage. Moreover, Azam Khan's selection was quite controversial, considering his fitness and performance in the previous games. Keeping all these things in mind, the PCB sacked both members. 

"The Pakistan Cricket Board today confirmed that it has notified Abdul Razzaq and Wahab Riaz that their services will no longer be required in the national selection committee set up," said PCB.
