The most obvious one, the simmering and later blatant tension between Javed Afridi and Shahid Afridi, has ensured that the Phatan from Khyber Agency has now moved to the team of adopted home with Karachi Kings. Mohammad Rizwan comes to Karachi Kings, which maybe means end for Kumara Sangakara’s stay at the Karacki Kings. Iftikhar Ahmad also got moved from Peshawar to Islamabad.
