Pakistanis are not happy as Shaheen Afridi has been excluded from ICC’s Test player nominees!

Shaheen Afridi was not on the ICC list of the nominees for the Men’s Test Player of the Year 2021 award.

While Sri Lanka’s Dimuth Karunaratne, New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson, India’s Ravichandran Ashwin, and England’s Joe Root have been nominated by ICC. 

Pakistan fact pacer Shaheen has taken 47 wickets in nine Test matches that leaving him out has visibly irked cricket fans in the country.

Shaheen Shah has been phenomenal this year, and he is also the 2nd most wicket-taker this year after Ashwin.

Furthermore, Hassan Ali is also not on the list despite taking 41 wickets in the season.

Many took to social media to express their disappointment over ICC’s choice.
