Pakistan star left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi has bowled several match-winning spells for his country in his international career so far. Shaheen is a very popular figure in his country with young cricketers of Pakistan trying to follow his footsteps and represent their country at the highest level.

In keeping with this spirit, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Police Department has named the left-arm pacer as their “goodwill ambassador” and try to portray a soft police image to reduce the trust gap between the local police authorities and the citizens. An event was organized by the CCP police on July 4 (Monday) to name Shaheen as their ‘goodwill ambassador’.

In a function organised at the Prime Institute of Health and Sciences, Shaheen was also named as Honorary Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP). He paid homage to the martyrs of the CCP police department and the left-arm pacer also praised the department’s officers and paid his heartfelt gratitude to them.

Speaking at the event, Shaheen said that his father retired as a CCP police officer, while his brothers are currently employed in the department. He also gave his word to the KP police that they have the full backing of the Pakistan national cricket team. The pacer also shared pictures of the event on his social media handles to express his desires.

Shaheen will be soon seen in action during a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka, which will start on July 16 with the first match to be played at the Galle International Stadium while the second Test match will start on July 24 at R.Premadasa Stadium Colombo.
