Retired cricket star Shahid Afridi returned from England to Pakistan late on Sunday, to face the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) disciplinary committee, who had earlier suspended the cricketer's contract. Afridi returned amidst a throng of fans and supporters, waiting hours prior to his arrival, at the Karachi airport to welcome him with flags, placards and posters. Afridi surprisingly chose to exit from the main entrance instead of the back door exit, and reached home in Gulshan to be welcome by a sea of fans chanting his name and with slogans of support.
