Is Shahid Afridi a match-fixer?

This is what everybody must be thinking after legendary batsman Javed Miandad alleged him of match-fixing.

Post Miandad’s comments, Afridi and his lawyers are going through video clips and will send the notice this week.

According to reports published in The Express Tribune, the 36-year-old all-rounder has decided to send a legal notice to Miandad.

Speaking during the book launch ceremony of sports journalist Saleem Khaliq on Sunday, Afridi had said money has always been an issue for Miandad, which separated him from World Cup winning captain Imran Khan.

The 59-year-old, who was the part of the 1992 World Cup winning eleven, then accused Afridi of match fixing.

“I challenge Afridi to swear upon his daughter and say that he didn’t sell Pakistan’s matches,” said Miandad.

Afridi and his lawyer are watching clips of Miandad and his allegation thoroughly, and will be sending the required legal notice on October 13 as the offices remain close on 9th and 10th of Muharram.

Afridi, who stepped down from the captaincy after the World T20 debacle in India, is yet to announce his retirement from the game’s shortest format.

Afridi, who has made 98 T20I appearances, is the leading wicket-taker in the shortest format of the game with 97 scalps and has scored 1405 runs at an average of 18.
