ISLAMABAD : Former skipper Shahid Khan Afridi on Sunday said that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should consult Misbahul Haq, Younis Khan, Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Yousuf for improving domestic cricket structure in the country.
Talking to a private news channel, he said the credit of holding successful Pakistan Supper League (PSL) went to PSL Chairman Najam Sethi.
The leg-spinner said that his family and friends had requested him not to retire from the game, but he chose to quit international cricket gracefully. He, however, was playing league cricket as he had the required fitness level, he added. “I think that for next two years I will remain fit for league cricket – hence I am planning to play it as much as my fitness allows,” he said.
He categorically debunked the perception that he is soon going to join politics. “I don’t think that the kind of person I am; I can be with any party for more than a day. I will be kicked out after a day or two,” he said.
He said Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was doing good work for which he deserved appreciation.-APP
