KARACHI: Former T20 captain Shahid Afridi, while responding to a question, said “money has always been an issue for Javed Miandad”.

The all-rounder was talking to journalists in Karachi at the book launch ceremony of sports journalist Saleem Khaliq, when a reporter mentioned it to Afridi that “Javed Miandad has said that Afridi wanted farewell game only for money”.

To this Afridi responded saying, “money has always been an issue for Javed Miandad”.

He went on to say that "it doesn't suit a legendary cricketer like Miandad to pass such irresponsible comments".

Afridi said people loved him a lot and it doesn’t matter to him much whether he gets the farewell game or not.

“I will meet PCB executive committee’s chairman Najam Sethi and talk to him about what the board wants to do regarding the farewell game,” he said.
