Pakistan tour of England 2020: Shahid Afridi Foundation logo finds spot on Pakistan team jersey

Shahid Afridi Foundation logo: The Pakistan Cricket Board hasn’t been able to find a title sponsor for the upcoming tour of England.

The logo of Shahid Afridi Foundation will be seen on the jerseys of Pakistani players during the upcoming tour of England. The development comes after Pakistan Cricket Board couldn’t zero in on a title sponsor deal for the imminent three Tests and as many T20Is.

PCB not being able to find a sponsor could possibly be hinting towards a reality which other teams are also likely to suffer in the aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak. With business coming to a standstill, potential sponsors would be at least hoping for normalcy to return before committing any sort of an affluent deal.

If a report in Hindustan Times is to be believed, sources close to the PCB have stated that the board was in contact with a multi-national beverage company. However, the company offering only 35-40% of what PCB was expecting didn’t lead to the fruition of the deal.

The development was confirmed by former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi after he took on his Twitter handle to express delight regarding find a spot on the jerseys of the Pakistani team. Afridi, who helms the charity organisation, has done exceptional work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is worth mentioning that ICC (International Cricket Council) allowing teams to support a sponsor logo on the front of their Test jerseys is among the five rule changes made by the global body to support the sport in the era of coronavirus.
