Karachi: Pakistan’s former captain, Shahid Khan Afridi is all set to travel to Afghanistan next month to feature in the Shpageeza Cricket League, starting in Kabul from September 11th.


A source, privy to the matter, confirmed that the hard hitting all-rounder had agreed to play with one of the participating teams, Speen Ghar Tigers in the Shpageeza Cricket League.


“Shahid Afridi is likely to leave for Kabul on September 9th, after getting the necessary security clearance from relevant quarters”, the source added


In June this year, the then PCB executive committee head, Najam Sethi (now the PCB chairman) said that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) would not issue NoC to its players/coaches/umpires for Afghanistan citing bad security situation there.


The likes of Umar Akmal, Sohail Tanvir, Kamran Akmal, Rumman Raees, Sohail Khan, Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Rizwan were snapped up during the auction of the Shpageeza, earlier this year.


The fifth edition of Shpageeza, will see six teams – Band-e-Amir Dragons, Speen Ghar Tigers, Mis Ainak Knights, Boost Defenders, Kabul Eagles and Amo Sharks – battling it out to be crowned champions. The final of the Shpageeza league will be played September 22nd.
