Afridi to retire
Afridi to retire

Pakistani T20 international Captain Shahid Afridi has hinted that he might retire from Cricket after the World T20.

After Pakistan’s disappointing defeat against New Zealand in their game in the World T20, Afridi said at the press conference that he might hang his boots after their game against Australia on Friday.

Afridi was threatened to be sacked after the World irrespective of the result of Pakistan’s World T20 campaign. Afridi has won their first match against Bangladesh by 55 runs but lost to India and New Zealand that lead to virtually Pakistan’s World T20 campaign.
Afridi has been playing for Pakistan since 1992. He started his career as a spinner. And he used to bat at No, 7 and No. 8, but his ability to play big shots made an overnight hero when he played a swashbuckling innings against Sri Lanka made him popular among the cricket fans around the world.

Afridi has won the 2009 World T20 in England. He played 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 96 T20I. He has opened the innings for Pakistan with Saeed Anwar on many occasions. He has taken retirement from ODI cricket after the 2015 World Cup Down Under.

Afridi has never been able to win a World Cup match against India like his predecessors. He recently said that Pakistan cricket’s talent pool is dying as Pakistan Cricket Board did not take an initiative to revive the School Cricket system. He also blamed former cricketers who instead of developing cricket in domestic sphere always want to be a coach of Pakistan team.
