Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi may not be included in the national team for the ICC Champions Trophy, as per sources. As per sources, Afridi hasn’t been shortlisted for the final team as he didn’t take any wickets in his last few ODI for which the selectors feel that he isn’t doing justice to his part as a bowler.
The report more stated that Afridi, a veteran of 354 ODIs, had also struggled with his bowling in the recent national ODI tournament. Meanwhile, the sources also stated that senior players like Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Malik have also been told to show their worth to the squad or face boot-out.
The sources further stated that the selectors have also ignored Wahab Riaz, who had played in the miserable South Africa tour, with the team for the Champions Trophy.
