Afridi to send legal notice to cricket legend Javed Miandad
KARACHI (92 News) – Former Twenty20 Captain Shahid Afridi has on Friday decided to send legal notice to legend Javed Miandad after he accused Afridi of involvement in match fixing.
Talking to 92 News, Shahid Afridi said that he will send legal notice to Javed Miandad after consulting his lawyer.
“I cannot take back my decision of sending legal notice as I cannot retire from international cricket with an allegation of involvement in match fixing,” he added.
Earlier, Shahid Afridi in his tweet apologized to senior cricketer Javed Miandad for his words after an exchange of hot words between the two cricketing legends. “I regret what I said to a senior but of course I had to eventually react to his behavior,” Afridi said in his tweet.
“Javed Miandad is legend of cricket but he used very harsh words on TV for long time. He made personal attack on me for no reason. I tolerated for long time but every person has a limit, sad that Javed Miandad was making personal attacks for long time” he added.
Afridi had earlier criticized Miandad, saying Miandad is always hungry for money. “Such a great cricketer should not say things like this. This is the difference between Javed Miandad and Imran Khan,” he said.
