Shahid Afridi made this allegation

Canada Global T20 is the same cricket league whose franchise owners had accused Shahid's father-in-law Shahid Afridi of not paying the dues. Shahid Afridi made this public by writing on his X handle, in which he also tagged the ICC. According to Shahid Afridi, the league franchise has not paid the dues of many players including him. In such a situation, it will be very interesting to see whether his son-in-law i.e. Shaheen Afridi joins this league now or not.
