Afridi frequently expresses his love for his five daughters on social media. Back in November, the cricketer shared a loving message for his youngest daughter on Instagram. He always calls his daughter a “wonderful gift from Allah.”
“Didn’t get to spend much time with my other daughters especially when they were growing up; feel blessed that now I have the time to see Arwa grow,” he said after he posted photos of his youngest daughter. “May Allah bless her and protect her as well as children all around,” the former cricket all-rounder continued.
Last week, Afridi made an emergency exit from Lankan Premier League just a week after reaching Sri Lanka. Perhaps he had to tend to one of his ailing daughter reportedly.
While Afridi said he returned to Pakistan due to a personal emergency, the official website of Galle Gladiators-the franchise Afridi is part of, had stated that he has returned to see his sick daughter.
Back on December 2, Shahid Afridi tweeted “Unfortunately I have a personal emergency to attend to back home.”
He went on to assure fans that he “will return to join back my team at LPL immediately after the situation is handled”. He wished his team the “best of luck” during his absence. Earlier he was in news for his altercation with Afghan cricketer Naveen-ul-Haq at one of the matches of the Lankan Premier League.
