Speculations were rife that both the cricketers are expected to enter politics and that they would be fighting from PTI. Both the cricketers had expressed concern about the current political chaos in the country on their respective Twitter accounts. Muhammad Hafeez had openly shown his support for PM Imran Khan during the No-Confidence Motion. The cricketer said that despite having several differences with PM Imran Khan, he stands with him on this occasion.

On the other hand, Shahid Afridi expressed his frustration over the current political turmoil in Pakistan. The cricketer seemed to be agitated with the steps of the opposition to topple the sitting government of PTI. Afridi said that every elected government has the right to complete its five-year tenure. The cricketer added that it will take years to rectify and clean the entire political system. Social media users hinted that the cricketer is supporting PM Imran Khan.

The institutions must review where Pakistan stands in the delivery of justice.
