Legendary all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi has joined Samaa TV as the director of Sports, local media reports said on Monday.
According to reports, Afridi has become part of the sports program Game Set Match which airs from Monday to Friday. The program is hosted by renowned sports anchor and commentator Sawera Pasha.
Speaking at the show earlier in the day, Afridi praised Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, after the latter’s prolific performances in the recent past.

“I think the reason why he [Mohammad Rizwan] has been successful is that he was patient during the difficult phase [when he was out of the side] of his career,” said Afridi.
“Despite being on the sidelines, he continued to put in the hard yards rather than shifting his focus to something like social media, which some of our players do in order to get back into the team. Rizwan knew that only performance on the field will allow him to make a comeback.”
“Mental toughness is another major reason behind Rizwan’s success and I hope that he continues his match-winning performances for Pakistan,” he added.
