Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi has turned down a $50,000 offer to play in the inaugural Caribbean Premier League after the franchise which had shown interest in him significantly reduced the initial proposal made to the flamboyant all-rounder.

“Afridi was offered $50,000 for the contract but he rejected it pointing out that initially the same franchise had offered him $150,000 and he would not accept less now,” a source close to Afridi said.— AFP
