Afridi hints at T20 retirement


KARACHI: Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has stated that he will bid farewell to Twenty20 cricket when he feels that he is a burden to the team, reports.

Shahid Afridi has said that senior players have let the team down and the side cannot win matches if they continue to give bad performances consistently.

He added that the green shirts are going through difficult time. He stressed that the cricket board has to experiment with younger players in order to have a good side for the World T20 2016 in India.

The all rounder also stated that he will call it quit when he feels that he is a burden to the side.

It should be noted that Pakistan suffered a humiliating whitewash against Bangladesh in the one day series while they also lost the only T20 match of the tour as well.

On the other hand, Pakistan has lost three of its four Twenty20 matches since October 2014 under Afridi’s leadership.

Shahid Afridi just took only three wickets in his seven games of the Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand.
