In a television show, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s little cute daughter was seen asking why Shaheen Shah Afridi is in the national team for the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 played in India. The adorable video has gone viral over various social media platforms.

The incident reportedly happened during a Pakistani television show before their match against Australia.  Shahid along with his daughter Arwa were part of the television show.

In the video, Arwa was found asking, “Papa, is Shaheen Afridi also in Pakistan team?”

In response, Shahid Afridi replied, “Yes, Shaheen Afridi is also in the Pakistan team.”

A puzzled Arwa then asked, “Kyun hai (why is that)?”

In reply, Afridi said, “We will ask this only when he does not perform well,”

Pakistan are currently placed fifth in the points table, with two wins and two defeats in four matches. After losing against Australia and India, the Green Army have lost steam in their hunt for a spot in the semi-finals. Though there remain a number of issues in the Pakistan team, poor performance by their bowling unit is one of the biggest concerns.
