Pakistani T-20 Cricket Captain Shahid Afridi might have been banned for two matches after found guilty of ball tampering, but the incident has landed him an unexpected offer. Afridi has been hired by Apple Inc. as brand ambassador for their upcoming product iCricket.

As always, nobody knows what the actual product of Apple could be like, but iCricket has already become a craze among the followers.

The news comes close to Pakistani cricketers being rejected by the IPL franchisees for playing in the third season of the IPL. After a complete whitewash by Australia, some critics had criticized Pakistani players as deserving to be denied lucrative contracts, but this handsome offer by Apple has proven the importance of Pakistani cricketers yet again.

Apple and Afridi both have not disclosed the amount of money involved.
