Shahid Afridi hopes for a good performance from the national cricket team during the tour of England.
Speaking on the program “Cricket Corner with Saleem Khaliq” on Pakistan Cricket’s largest website www.cricketpakistan.com.pk, Shahid Afridi said that the draw series in difficult English conditions is also a victory, in 2016 captain Misbah Al-Haq and Younis Khan performed brilliantly, both have the best experience of the England environment, the players have the full support of good team management, full guidance of the players for what strategy to play in which session There are coaches, hopefully the team will do well in batting and bowling.
Asked if high expectations were attached to Babar Azam, he said, “I don’t think the young batsman took any extra pressure but the captaincy did not affect his game. Babar’s focus is on his performance. But can be considered the backbone of Pakistani batting, in the coming times they will win matches against Pakistan alone.
To a question, the former captain said that Pakistan’s soil is very fertile in terms of fast bowlers, after Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Shoaib Akhtar, now new talent is also visible, these pacers can play cricket for a long time, Shaheen Shah Afridi And Naseem Shah is talented, the experience of Mohammad Abbas, Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir will also be useful, more bowlers will emerge from PSL.
Shahid Afridi said that Shadab Khan can be a good all-rounder, Wahab Riaz is capable of excellent power hitting, Emad Usim is also capable of performing with bat and ball, 25 or 30 runs from an all-rounder and as a good bowler. Performance is required, the captain must be confident to be able to test it on any batting number. He said that Shoaib Malik kept himself super fit even when he was out of the national team, Pakistan can benefit from his experience in the upcoming series and World Twenty20.
I only want to do service politics with welfare work
Shahid Afridi says that he only wants to do politics of service, because of Corona virus, he got an opportunity to participate in welfare activities, he contacted people directly across the country, it is a good thing that the virus itself I had the opportunity to deliver food etc. to the people before I fell victim to it. During this time I stayed away from cricket activities, the training process continued, I did not touch bat and ball, I am in politics but I just want to do service politics.
Wherever there is oppression on humanity, we must speak out against it
Shahid Afridi says that wherever there is oppression on humanity, one should speak out against it. Despite strong opposition from Indian users on social media, when asked to state the bitter truths, he said that every religion in the world teaches humanity. Muslims should also speak out against oppression. He said that the war against Gautam Gambhir was on the ground and there was nothing wrong with it. However, such things should not affect ordinary life, everyone outside the field. Have friends
Aamir’s decision to retire from Test cricket was correct
Shahid Afridi justifies Mohammad Aamir’s decision to retire from Test cricket, all-rounder says he should give up work he doesn’t enjoy, in Test cricket the bowler has to swing with a new and old ball with speed. Needed, Aamir’s new ball would have kept the speed good, the old one would have been difficult, the long format would not have passed without it, so I think Mohammad Amir made the right decision keeping in view his fitness.
The national team is a platform to learn, not to perform
Shahid Afridi says that the national team is a platform for performance, not for learning. For coaching, it is appropriate to focus on academies on under-14 and 16 cricketers. When a player makes a place in the national team, prepare him for performances. Happens, the people in the support staff can guide the players to perform better under pressure, they show how to stay focused in difficult situations, teaching skills is possible at the junior level. Is.
The decision of the PSL 5 champion team should have been made in March
Shahid Afridi says the PSL 5 champions should have been decided in March, announcing the end of the event and giving the trophy to the top team in the league stage, but the PCB thought things might be better. Unfortunately, this did not happen. It may be recalled that the play-off matches of PSL were postponed in March due to corona virus which is not likely to be held.
Afridi termed the representation of Multan Sultans as a successful experience. He said that the franchise in PSL 5 got the top position in the league stage due to good coaching and good planning. Andy Flower, Mushtaq Ahmed and Azhar Mahmood Provided full support, Shaun Masood groomed as captain, foreign cricketers also performed well, owner Ali Tareen handled matters well, it is up to Multan Sultans whether they want to go ahead with me for next season or Then another team hires me.
Before saying anything, Kaneria should look at his role
Shahid Afridi advised Danish Kaneria to look at his role. The all-rounder says that as a captain and a normal player, he always supported the juniors. He took care of many cricketers like his own children.
Danesh Kaneria was also a good child, now 11, 12 years later he started making statements. It seems very strange. Regarding Kaneria, I will say that look at your role, you are Pakistan. Slandered, that’s why I don’t take any of his words seriously.
The heart of retirement wants fans and family to stop
Shahid Afridi says he will continue to play cricket as long as his passion and passion remain, his heart wants him to retire but fans and family demand that he continue to participate in leagues Yes, I will quit cricket when I feel that fitness is not helping me, I am becoming a burden on the teams, enthusiasm and passion is not maintained
