Shahid Afridi announces Retirement from cricket
KARACHI (Monday, May 30, 2011) : Former skipper Pakistan cricket team Shahid Khan Afridi has announced retirement from international cricket here late on Monday, Geo News reported.
According to sources, Afridi’s disagreement with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over some issues resulted in his early retirement.
He said it was hard for him to play under a cricket board, which pays no respect to senior players.
“I cannot work with the people who find it difficult to tolerate statements in favour of cricket,” he stated, saying that the duty of a coach is to work for the welfare and in favour of team.
“It is nothing short of an hounour for me that Pakistan played world cup semifinal under my captaincy,” he added.
