Former Pakistan captain Moin Khan has praised the rising star Shaheen Shah Afridi, but he also has concerns about his development as a player. In a recent interview, Moin Khan backed Afridi as the future captain of the Pakistani cricket team. However, he also expressed concern over Afridi’s workload management and the lack of senior players to support him in the team.

Shaheen Shah Afridi is one of the most talented and exciting young players in world cricket. He made his debut for Pakistan in 2018 and has since gone on to establish himself as a crucial member of the team. The left-arm fast bowler has already taken over 70 wickets in just 22 Test matches and has impressed with his performances in all formats of the game.

Moin Khan, who himself played for Pakistan between 1990 and 2004, believes that Afridi has the potential to become one of the best captains Pakistan has ever had. However, he also acknowledges that there are challenges that come with leading a team at such a young age.

Workload Management 

One of the biggest concerns Moin Khan has about Afridi’s development as a player is his workload management. Afridi is still very young and has already played a lot of cricket for Pakistan. Moin believes that it is important to manage Afridi’s workload carefully to ensure that he doesn’t burn out too quickly.

Another concern that Moin has is the lack of senior players in the Pakistan team to support Afridi. As a young captain, Afridi will need the guidance and support of his more experienced teammates. However, the current Pakistan team is relatively inexperienced, and there are not many senior players who can help him.

Despite these concerns, Moin Khan remains optimistic about Afridi’s future. He believes that the young fast bowler has all the qualities required to become a successful captain. Afridi has already shown great leadership skills on the field and has impressed with his ability to think on his feet.

Pressure handling capability is the key

Moin Khan also believes that Afridi’s success as a captain will depend on how well he is able to handle the pressure and expectations that come with the role. As the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Afridi will be under a lot of scrutiny from fans and the media. Moin Khan believes that Afridi will need to remain focused and level-headed if he is to succeed.

Shaheen Shah Afridi is a hugely talented young player who has the potential to become one of the best captains Pakistan has ever had. However, there are concerns about his workload management and the lack of senior players in the team to support him. As Afridi continues to develop as a player, it will be interesting to see how he handles the challenges of leading the Pakistan cricket team.
