Shahid Afridi mulls legal action against Javed Miandad
KARACHI: Star all-rounder Shahid Afridi has met with his lawyers to seek their opinion on filing suit against Javed Miandad’s allegations of match-fixing.
Afridi met his legal aides today and discussed Miandad’s TV interview in which the legendry batsman accused him of throwing away matches.
He had accused Afridi of match-fixing in his interview with a news channel. “Shahid Afridi should put his hand over his daughters’ heads and proclaim that he never sold a match,” he said.
The comments from Miandad came after Afridi had said earlier during a book launch that money had always been an issue with Miandad.
Afridi had said that Miandad used to say petty things despite being a big star and that was the ‘difference between him and Imran Khan’. He was responding to a question from a reporter, who had asked him to opine on Miandad’s statement that Afridi should not get a farewell match.
However, the former Pakistan cricket captain and swashbuckling all-rounder took to Twitter and regretted his statements against Miandad.
While commenting on the duel, cricket analyst Sikander Bakht had said that match-fixing allegation is a serious issue and Afridi may take this matter to the court.
