    "PCB should not forget that they are what they are, because of the players" : Shahid Afridi

    Former Pakistan T20I captain Shahid Afridi has once again criticised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over its mistreatment of players.

    Afridi, while talking to the media at that National Stadium in Karachi, praised retirement decisions of Test captain Misbah ul Haq and veteran Younis Khan.

    “I think the PCB should not forget that they are because of the players,” said Shahid. “I believe Younus and Misbah took the right decision.”

    The 37-year-old praised the team’s performance in the limited-over series against West Indies, and also lauds Sarfraz Ahmed’s captaincy.

    “The team performed really well in both limited overs series in the West Indies,” he said. “I think Sarfraz was very good with his captaincy, but he needs to carry everyone forward.”

    Afridi, who represented Pakistan in 98 T20Is, also cleared the air regarding his Karachi Kings joining by saying that: “Since I live in Karachi, I joined Karachi Kings.”

    "Some big players have retired in the past but they havent been given a good farewell"

    "I have always said that a trend should be set for such farewells and yes, I did not get and it does not matter as I have the love of the people which is enough for me"

    "But I am happy that PCB is proposing this (farewell) for Misbah and Younis"

    "We need players like Abdul Razzaq who in my days could hit the ball at the beginning or end of the inings"

    "We need some good all-rounders for our team"

    "I would like to congratulate Sarfraz for the way he has taken the team forward"
