Shahid Afridi rules out going back on ODI retirement

Shashi / 21 April 2015

Shahid Afridi, one of the most popular cricketers in the nation of Pakistan, has ruled out any chances of making a comeback into the ODI squad.

Shahid Afridi, who is now in Dhaka to play the only T20 between Pakistan and the Bangladesh, said that he will not come out of retirement and supported the younger players stating that they will need a bit of time to adjust to the team and that they will eventually shine.

Afridi who has played 400 matches for the nation said that he is now concentrating only on building a team that will lift the World T20 in 2016 and that the country has very good young players who can make that dream come true.

Afridi also said that their loss against Bangladesh in the tri-series will not affect them and defended Saeed Ajmal who came back with a rejuvenated bowling action saying that judging him on a single match would be unfair.

Afridi also added that the batsmen should take up the responsibility in any format and that partnerships are always good for the team. He said that not just three figures but even a 50 run partnership will help the team in a huge way.
