Afridi pulls out of 2-match ODI series against Ireland

Pakistan's glitzy all-rounder Shahid Afridi has pulled out of the 2-match ODI series against Ireland due to the illness of his father.

Shahid AfridiAccording to a Geo News report, Afridi had informed the Pakistan Cricket Board that he would not be available for the two-match ODI Series in Ireland on May 28 and 30.

"Afridi wants to spend time with his ailing father who is under treatment in the United States. It has nothing to do with him being removed from the One-day International team captaincy," a source claimed.

The Chairman of the PCB, Ijaz Butt removed Afridi as captain earlier this month and replaced him with Misbah-ul-Haq who is presently leading the team in the Test series against the West Indies.
