New Delhi: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi is giving information one after another. He recently opened the poll of the Pakistan Cricket Board. At the same time, Afridi made a big statement about Shoaib Malik. Afridi said that the pitch was tampered with during the live match against England on the orders of Shoaib Malik. The ball was not turning or anything else was happening in the match. In such a situation, the pitch was abandoned on the orders of Shoaib.

Shahid Afridi said that he took the opportunity of bursting gas cylinder to destroy the pitch during the live match. Before doing all this, he also talked to Shoaib Malik.
Speaking to Sama TV recently, Afridi said, ‘It was a good series. There was a Test match in Faisalabad. It was a test, but there was no ball turning or swing and seaming. I was trying my best, but nothing was happening. Then suddenly a gas cylinder exploded and everyone’s attention went towards it.
Afridi also said, ‘After the gas cylinder explosion, I told Shoaib that I wanted to make a patch here. At least turns the ball over. In response, Shoaib Malik said, “Do it, no one is watching.” Then we make a patch there with shoes.’ He said, ‘Now that I think about it, I realize it was a mistake.’
