Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is in deep trouble after the sacking of chief selector Wahab Riaz and committee member Abdul Razzaq.

It was revealed, after an initial probe, that the former Pakistan T20I captain misbehaved with coaches and management staff during the ICC T20 World Cup.

The revelation comes against the backdrop of ongoing measures being taken by the board, the latest of which was the sacking of Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq from the selection committee.

The duo is alleged of favouring certain players during their tenure.

PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi decided to oust the duo only after the culmination of the investigation into the said matter.

The players supported by Wahab and Razzaq turned out to be the ones who didn’t perform and were in fact opposed by other members of the selection committee as well.

Moreover, the board is also probing players who have lobbies and the benefit that is being gained from it.

However, Wahab Riaz denied such allegations claiming that details of their team meetings are documented.

He questioned, how his vote for a certain player can dominate over six others.

Wahab then announced that he will be issuing a statement in the evening today.

It is to be noted that the board has retained Mohammad Yousuf, Asad Shafiq and Bilal Afzal in the selection panel which also includes the captain and head coach.
