Lahore: Pakistan's controversial stumper Zulqarnain Haider's return to first-class cricket has been marked with controversy after he lashed out at some seniors including former captain Shahid Afridi and retired pacer Shoaib Akhtar for their comments on Pakistan cricket and PCB.
Haider, who has been playing in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, took a dig at Afridi and Akhtar, criticising them for giving statements after they retired from the national team.
"Now that they are retired and out of contention they are giving critical statements about Pakistan cricket, the Board and our cricket culture. Why say all this now? Why not when they were playing?," asked Haider.
