New Delhi: Players around the world are desperate to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The reason behind this is wealth and fame. Many foreign players are more ready to play IPL than play for their country. On this issue, former Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi broke out.
South African players left the series in the middle
In fact, there was a 3 game test series between South Africa and Pakistan (SA vs PAK). After the second game of this series, some players from South Africa left the series and moved to India. Cock’s star wicket batsman Quinton, fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and Enrich Nortje only left for India after the second ODI. .
Raging Shahid Afridi
Former Pakistani veteran Shahid Afridi got angry with South African players leaving the series in the middle. Afridi said in a tweet: “ I am surprised to see that the South Africa Cricket Board has allowed their players to go and play in the IPL in the middle of the series. We have to think about it again.
Amazing to see @OfficialCSA allowing players to travel for IPL in the middle of a series. It is sad to see the T20 leagues influencing international cricket. We must rethink !! https://t.co/5McUzFuo8R
