Pakistan’s limited-overs captain Shahid Afridi is set to meet the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt on his return from the West Indies to discuss issues faced while working with coach Waqar Younis…

According to the Daily Express, Afridi had developed problems with Waqar even during the World Cup with things getting out of hands on the tour of West Indies and the captain even refusing to take part in the final two One-Day Internationals (ODI), a tour he was reluctant to be part of initially.

The all-rounder left for the tour from Karachi – as opposed to the squad that left from Lahore. The duo were involved in an argument over selection matters for the playing-eleven.

“Afridi wanted to give the new players ample chances in the series and insisted they were not on tour for a joyride but Waqar insisted they play the tried-and-tested players,” said a team official. “Afridi wanted to try out Sadaf Hussain. During the World Cup he wasn’t happy that Junaid Khan didn’t get to play a single match…”
