Cricket fans worldwide were shocked after they heard the reports of Pakistan cricket team skipper Babar Azam and fast bowler Shaheen Afridi’s rift in the dressing room after their exit from the Asia Cup 2023. Since then, the speculation regarding tensions between Afridi and Azam has been circulating in cricketing circles and has left fans concerned about the unity within the Pakistan cricket team.

However, Afridi has now put rest on the rumours of a supposed rift with captain Babar. Afridi, in his recent post on Twitter, posted a picture with Babar and not only denied any discord but also referred to Babar Azam as “family,” emphasizing the strong bond between the two players.

However, Afridi’s statement has provided much-needed reassurance to fans and stakeholders alike. Afridi acknowledged that differences and misunderstandings can arise within any team, but he underscored the importance of addressing them internally and resolving issues constructively. He went on to express his unwavering support for Babar Azam’s leadership and commitment to the team’s success.
