Darren Gough Predicts Shaheen Afridi As A Future Captain
The former England pacer while praising Shaheen said, “Shaheen is a terrific talent, he is hungry for success, he is very energetic, he enjoyed being captain of the Qalandars, I think he led them very well with loads of enthusiasm, he is definitely the future Pakistan captain.”
Gough who is in Pakistan for Lahore Qalandars’ Players Development Program’s (PDP) trails also praised the franchise. He said, “I was really excited about it, soon as we signed the partnership with Lahore Qalandars a few months ago, I always said from the very off, I can’t wait to come back to Pakistan, I had some great memories here of training and playing. I’ve got the opportunity to experience out here in Lahore how they go about selecting some of the talents from the program; then they would have the opportunity to play in the PSL, that’s what we want to do at Yorkshire.”
Gough while praising pacer Haris Rauf on the other hand said, “Haris Rauf has been a great signing for us. He is someone I admire, not much experience in the longer format but a fantastic performer in the T20 for Lahore Qalandars, Melbourne Stars and for Pakistan. I watched him at the World Cup. For me to get the opportunity to see if he was available to play for Yorkshire with Lord Patel that was just amazing. He has been brilliant at the club, the lads have loved him, he is fitted in really really well. He found it hard but he bowled beautifully against Kent, he got five wickets in the first innings.”
