Karachi: Pakistan`s flamboyant allrounder, Shahid Afridi on Friday met former President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf to enquire about his ailing mother in Dubai.

Afridi dropped in at the residence of Musharraf`s daughter in Defence Housing Society and remained with the former head of the state for a while.

A photograph of the two was also released on the social network site.

"It was a courtesy visit to inquire about Musharraf Sahab`s mother`s health and we also discussed some cricket naturally," Afridi told Geo News.

The all-rounder was quick to give his statement to dispel any speculations about why he had chosen to visit the former President at a time when the ruling party and the main opposition parties have ganged up against him.
