PSL Cricket | Shaheen Shah Afridi becomes youngest captain to win T20 league after guiding Lahore Qalandars to maiden title
PSL Cricket – Shaheen Shah Afridi, a left-arm fast bowler, became the youngest captain to win a major T20 league title when his team Lahore Qalandars defeated Multan Sultan in the Pakistan Super League PSL Cricket final in Lahore. Afridi is 21 years old.
Former Australia captain Steve Smith previously held the honor, leading the Sydney Sixers to the Big Bash title at 22 in 2012.
Afridi’s appointment as captain of the Lahore franchise had come as a big surprise to cricket fans before the start of the PSL cricket, but on Sunday night, he proved that the Lahore management had made the right decision.

Even former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, who is set to become the pacer’s father-in-law, has not backed the decision to make him captain at this time and has advised him not to accept the responsibility.
“Yes, I told him not to take the responsibility now,” Shahid said in an interview. “But he said he wanted to do it and can handle the pressure.”
“It’s a big moment for my team and me, but I think everyone contributed to the title win and they supported me a lot from the beginning,” the victorious captain said after the final, which around 33,000 people watched.
Multan was led by Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, the national red ball team’s vice-captain.
