Pakistan Cricket: Afridi blames Misbah for exclusion

By Rida Zaheerafridi

Shahid Afridi has alledged  Pakistan’s one-day cricket captain  Misbah-ul-Haq for his exception from the Champions Trophy squad, and has vowed  to return to the national team.

Afridi told the  media on Wednesday that “It’s the  captain’s decision to drop me.”

The veteran of 354 limited-overs internationals also says it’s “no big deal”  for him if a captain doesn’t want a certain player in the team.

In announcing the squad earlier this week, selectors said Afridi, who has  scored 7,201 and taken 348 wickets in ODIs, was left out due to his recent form  in ODIs.

Former skipper Afridi says he will quit international cricket the day he  feels he is a burden on the team, but “I know I could represent Pakistan for a  few more years.”
