The former Pakistani fast bowler most probably known as the Rawalpindi Express for his exceptional pace, Shoaib Akhtar, has lashed out at the owner of Peshawar Zalmi, Javed Afridi for wanting him to continue PSL despite COVID-19 outbreak.

Shoaib Akhtar seemed to be unhappy with Afridi’s statement who at the amalgamated conference of PSL‘s franchises owners and management has said that,

“I back the decision to postpone the league but on a personal note, I was in favor of holding the remaining matches as well. While we were discussing this issue in meeting with other PSL franchises and PCB, I raised the point that it is just a matter of 48 hours, so let the PSL conclude in a better way,” 

In a reply, Shoaib said,

“One of the team owner (Javed Afridi) is still saying that the remaining matches shall also have taken place. Imagine if this outbreak had spread in the stadium, be it Karachi or Lahore.”

The few of the matches at prior were played behind closed doors with empty stadiums. The league was remaining with only three matches; two semi-finals and a final and Javed Afridi willed franchises and PCB to go ahead despite the globally spread COVID-19 threats.
