The All Rounder also claimed that as per his sources, there will be some necessary changes to the World T20 Squad of Pakistan prior to the mega event. Afridi had earlier revealed that he was surprised on the selection of 2/3 players, but he didn’t take anyone’s name.
Afridi also reacted on Misbah-Ul-Haq and Waqar Younis’s resignation. Afridi said that if it was a decision taken solely by the former coaches themselves, then they should have waited till the World T20. He also said that Philander and Hayden won’t create much difference due to shortage of time.
Upon being asked on whether Shahid Afridi would coach youngsters, he replied that it would be an honour for him to coach the youngsters. In fact Shahid Afridi said that working with PCB in any capacity would be a big honour for him.
