In a shocking revelation recently, former Men in Green skipper and star all-rounder Shahid Afridi has informed that Shaheen is paying money from his own pocket to fund his stay in the UK and get fit as soon as possible and is not getting any help from the Pakistan Cricket Board.
Giving insights into the whole scenario, Afridi, in an interview with Samma TV, said, “When I talk about Shaheen.. that guy went to England on his own. He bought his own ticket; he spent his own money to stay in a hotel. I arranged a doctor for him, then he contacted the doctor. PCB is not doing anything; he is doing that on his own.”
“Everything, from coordination to doctors to his hotel room and food expenses, he is paying out of his own pocket. As far as I know, Zakir Khan talked to him 1-2 times, but that was it,” the former Pakistan skipper further added.
Zakir is currently the Director of Cricket for international tours at the PCB.
Shaheen, who recently posted a video of him lifting weights and doing other exercises in the gym, is expected to join the side in Brisbane on October 15.
