Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi raised concerns over the non-payment of dues to many players who took part in the Global T20 Canada and Legends League Cricket (LLC) tournaments, pointing fingers at the event organisers.
In Canada’s GT20, Afridi represented the Toronto Nationals, and at the same time, Legends League Cricket is happening in India, showcasing renowned players such as Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle, Gautam Gambhir, and Irfan Pathan.
Shahid Afridi took to social media to highlight the issue of non-payments in both the T20 leagues and urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to take action against them. However, after a few minutes, Afridi deleted the tweet.
Here’s what Shahid Afridi wrote on Twitter:
“I didn’t want to do this, but need to for the sake of my peers and the sport I love so dearly. It is tantamount and extremely integral for the organizing members of any event to keep their word in every situation.
“@GT20Canada & @llct20 owe payments to many of their players and have been non responsive to the requests. @icc please look into the matter as it requires your urgent attention.”
