Yuvraj Singh from India, Chris Gayle aka “Universe Boss,” and Usain Bolt, who is the fastest man in the world, are also stars of the big event.

In 2009, Afridi led Pakistan to victory in the T20 World Cup. In 2007, he was a key part of their run to the final.

He said, “The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is an event that is very close to my heart.” “Being Player of the Tournament in the first tournament and winning the trophy in 2009 are two of the best moments in my career that happened on this stage.”

“In the past few years, the T20 World Cups have grown stronger. I’m excited to be a part of this one, which will have more teams, more games, and more drama than ever before.”

“I’m most looking forward to seeing the game between India and Pakistan on June 9.” It’s one of the biggest battles in sports, and New York will be a great place to see these two great teams play.

In 2009, Afridi was also named Player of the Match in both the semi-final match against South Africa and the final match against Sri Lanka.

Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager of Marketing and Communications, said, “Shahid played in six ICC Men’s T20 World Cups, two of them as captain. He was Player of the Match when his team won the trophy in 2009, so who better to join our all-star Ambassador team?”

“He has fans all over the world, and he, Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle, and Usain Bolt, who has won eight Olympic gold medals, will bring fans closer to the event before what is going to be the biggest T20 World Cup ever.”

From June 1 to June 2, 2024, the T20 World Cup will be held in the US and WA.
