Zaka Ashraf Refutes Reports of a Rift Within the Pakistani Team

Zaka Ashraf refutes reports of a rift within the Pakistani team. Zaka Ashraf, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Management Committee, discussed the reported division within the Pakistan men’s cricket team.

The PCB chief addressed the media here on Monday, putting an end to the lingering dispute over the national team’s participation in the 2023 ICC World Cup.

Zaka Ashraf vigorously refuted any division among the players and held “cricket enemies” accountable for disseminating the untrue rumours.

“The team is not divided,” Ashraf declared. The crew as a whole is cohesive. The opponents of the game are the ones who fabricate these unfounded rumours.

For those who don’t know, it was reported in late September that Shaheen Afridi and Babar Azam got into a fight in the dressing room after the captain voiced his displeasure to the senior players over the loss to Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup Super Four, which resulted in their elimination from the continental competition.

According to reports, after the intense disagreement, things got very hot between Babar and Shaheen until wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan interfered to calm things down.

Later that night, Shaheen, the elite pacer, posted a photo of himself and Babar on Instagram. “Family” was his caption for the lone photo taken during a chess game.

After arriving in Dubai, Babar took a plane to Karachi to attend the metropolitan wedding reception of Shaheen and Ansha Afridi.

Although it seemed like everything was going well for the Green Shirts, their string of defeats in the ICC World Cup 2023 stoked new rumours of discord, particularly among the team’s three frontmen, Babar, Shaheen, and Rizwan.

Zaka Ashraf then sent his best wishes for the 2023 ICC World Cup campaign of the national squad.
