The two political rivals agreed to play Shahid Afridi’s charity match for IDPs of North Waziristan.
The Twenty 20 charity match organized by Pakistan’s all rounder Shahid Khan Afridi, to raise funds for the Internally Displaced Persons of North Waziristan, has been postponed due to maintenance work in Gaddafi stadium but Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and PTI chief Imran Khan have signaled to play the match.
“The match will now take place after the tour to Sri Lanka and the good thing is that Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif and former captain turned politician, Imran Khan had both confirmed their participation for the match,” Afridi said.
Several sports lovers especially cricket fans and political observers have been eagerly waiting to see Imran and Sharif, the fierce political rivals, play in the match. Afridi, who is working for welfare and charity in the fields of the health and education, said since there was maintenance work going on in Gaddafi stadium, the match was postponed.
“There is some maintenance work going on at the Gaddafi stadium and I wanted to hold the match there. So it is postponed for now but will definitely be held soon,” he said.
