Afridi likely to get reprieve
Lahore: Pakistan's one-day skipper Shahid Afridi has submitted his reply to the show-cause notice issued to him by the Pakistan Cricket Board for statements in the media about his differences with the team management.

Sources said that Afridi is likely to get reprieve because the special committee formed by the PCB to give suggestions for the betterment of cricket, had a soft corner for him.
