Shaheen Afridi Shares Photo With Babar Azam On X

Recently, Shaheen Afridi quashed the rumors of his rift with Pakistan captain Babar by sharing a picture on his official X (formerly known as Twitter) handle. He shared one of his pictures with Babar with a special “family” caption, seemingly indicating that things are absolutely fine between them and that the reports of the verbal spat were not true.

Notably, reports emerged in Pakistan media, claiming that Babar and Shaheen were engaged in a heated argument after the Men In Green were eliminated from the Asia Cup 2023 following a defeat in the nail-biter Super Four game against the Sri Lanka National Cricket Team.

As per BolNews, Babar lost his cool following the loss and he slammed his teammates in the dressing room for not performing well. Listening to this, Shaheen decided to interrupt and he asked the Pakistan captain to appreciate those who did well for the side.

Babar Azam reportedly didn’t like the interruption and said ‘I know who’s performing well’. This forced Mohammad Rizwan and the head coach to interrupt and stop the argument between the duo.
