Lahore Qalandars lose 10 out of 11 matches under Shaheen Afridi's captaincyBreaking

February 28, 2024

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) has witnessed a dismal performance from Lahore Qalandars under the leadership of captain Shaheen Shah Afridi, much to the disappointment of cricket enthusiasts. In the ninth edition of PSL, Lahore Qalandars' campaign has taken a severe blow, with the team losing all six of their initial matches, effectively jeopardizing their chances of advancing further in the tournament. Shaheen Shah Afridi, while shouldering the responsibilities of both national team and franchise captaincy for Lahore Qalandars in 2024, has endured a challenging tenure. Leading the team in 11 matches, Afridi faced defeat in 10 encounters, managing to secure only one victory.

The solitary triumph came in a crucial match against the Kiwis in Christchurch on January 21, offering a fleeting moment of respite amidst a string of disappointments. Multan Sultans' recent dominant performance against Lahore Qalandars, resulting in a resounding 60-run victory, has further exacerbated their plight. With this defeat, Shaheen XI's prospects of making it to the playoffs in PSL have significantly dwindled. The underwhelming run of Lahore Qalandars under Shaheen Shah Afridi's captaincy underscores the challenges faced by the team, prompting calls for reflection and strategical reevaluation to salvage their campaign in the remaining fixtures of PSL.
