Afridi now plans to turn freelance cricketer

“I have played all the cricket I wanted too and now I just want to focus and enjoy playing in the leagues,” Afridi told the reporters at a function at the Karachi University campus here.

The flamboyant all-rounder has not been selected in the national team since he led Pakistan in their disappointing Asia Cup and W0orld T20 campaigns last year after which he quit captaincy.

Although there has been lot of speculation on whether the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will give Afridi a chance to play a farewell match, th cricketer today appeared to have accepted that he might have played his final game for the country.

The all-rounder who is now busy with his foundation and charity work, however, backed wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed to be made Pakistan captain in all three formats.

Backing Sarfaraz, Afridi said Pakistan needed a fighting captain like him.

“In the end it is the decision of the Cricket Board who they appoint as captain but if they want him to lead in all three formats it will be good for Pakistan cricket,” he said.
