Afridi: We are not producing quality cricketers


Former Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi believes his country are not producing quality cricketers as they have in the past, saying they focus more on quantity and not quality.

The 36-year-old Afridi resigned from the captaincy after Pakistan endured a terrible World T20 in India last month, only winning one game.

The big-hitting allrounder thinks the team has declined significantly since 1992 when they won the World Cup under legendary captain Imran Khan.

Afridi told a private new channel: "Instead of going after quantity, we should concentrate on quality to meet the international standards.

"The team now is not like how it used to be back in the legendary Imran Khan's days. There used to be several stars but now there are just two or three.

"There used to be school, district, college and university cricket but now it is not seen."
