Former Pakistan all-rounder, Shahid Afridi credited the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and its president Najam Sethi for successfully organizing the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final in the country. The PCB officials have been trying very hard to develop the required confidence for restoring International cricket in the country.
