Pakistan opening batter Ahmed Shehzad used to be a phenomenal batting prospect at the top of the order. Despite scoring centuries in all formats and adding 5000 plus runs in 130 appearances at international stage, Shehzad has been left out by the selectors and currently he is not in scheme of things for any format of the game.

In the latest development, Ahmed Shehzad, who largely played under the leadership of former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, engaged in heated argument with his former skipper during a debate on a Pakistan’s news channel. During the debate, Shahid Afridi claimed that Shehzad is targeted because he supported him a lot during his tenure as a skipper.

Former Pakistan all-rounder claimed that he gave the batter much-needed chance in national squad and backed him throughout, but that turned out to be a negative thing for him after he left captaincy. “I supported him a lot because I was not finding an opener of his ability in Pakistan. He was performing as well,” said Afridi.

Ahmed Shehzad, who was taken aback with Afridi’s claim hit back by revealing that the former Pakistan cricketer put hurdles in his selection for a PSL franchise. “Listen, I don’t know why you said that. You have been an elder brother to me, you can say anything to me. But sometime It hurts me,” responded Shehzad.

Shahid Afridi interrupted Shehzad and claimed that the former always wishes ‘great things’ for the latter and wants him to ‘score runs, enjoy life.’ In response, Shehzad made a shocking revelation and said, “You keep saying that. You want me to score runs, but at the same time don’t deny me opportunities and platform where I can score runs. I want to ask who you when PSL side wanted to pick me, who came in and said no?”

Notably, Shehzad last played in Pakistan’s T20 domestic tournament in its 5th edition and had a forgettable outing while playing for Quetta Gladiators. The right-handed batter last played for Pakistan in a T20I match against Sri Lanka in October 2019.
