vijay ramesh | 4 years ago | Reply See the difference between BCCI & PCB. When a legend like Afridi is so close to taking 100 Wickets (just 3 short) and played in 98 Test matches, he has resigned from International Cricket and PCB has not stopped him from completing the 'landmark' 100 Number in his Cricketing career. What a shame when in India this would have just not happened with any of their cricket legends which we all know.
