Shahid Afridi, the former captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, is reportedly in line for a significant role as a federal minister in the interim government leading up to the upcoming general elections.

Sources suggest that Afridi’s name is being considered for a crucial portfolio within the caretaker setup, as reported by Dunya News.

The appointment comes as Senator Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar assumes the position of caretaker Prime Minister, following the conclusion of the National Assembly’s term on August 14.

Taking his oath of office on Independence Day, Kakar, a 52-year-old Senator hailing from Balochistan, is entrusted with the responsibility of guiding the nation through the electoral process.

This move highlights the potential incorporation of Afridi’s well-known public figure status into the political landscape during this transitional phase.
