Pakistan T20 Captain Shahid Afridi raised an approximate Rs10 million for his charity, the Shahid Afridi Foundation (SAF), at an event in Bahrain.
The star all-rounder auctioned his 2015 World Cup shirt and one of his bats for Rs800,000 and Rs2 million, respectively, along with other personal items, at ‘Dinner with Shahid Afridi’.
With the help of auctioned items and ticket sales, SAF managed to raise Rs10 million.

Thanking his guests, Afridi said he was happy to see so much support for his cause by the Pakistani community in Bahrain.
The T20 skipper will now return to Lahore to start his preparation for the three-match T20 series against England in the UAE next month.
