Karachi: Hundreds of Shahid Afridi's fans have started to assemble at the Karachi airport to receive the former captain who returns home from London to resolve his bitter dispute with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Afridi's fans, together with local cricket organisers, were planning to take out a rally on Sunday night in a bid to put pressure on the government to bring about sweeping changes in the PCB and reinstate Afridi as Pakistan's One-day captain.
Afridi was sacked after the One-day series against the West Indies that Pakistan won 3-2. Afridi, who spearheaded Pakistan to the World Cup semi-finals in March, spoke about differences within the team management after returning from the Caribbean. The PCB responded by sacking him as the captain.
