Afridi will announce future plans at home

News

Pakistan's T20I captain Shahid Afridi was undecided about his future in international cricket after his team were knocked of the World T20 after a 21-run loss to Australia in Mohali on Friday.

The 36-year-old Afridi, who was expected to call it quits after the global tournament, said that he will definitely not captain his country again but will announce his plans when the team returns home.

Afridi said at the post-match ceremony after the Australia game: "I will announce it in my country. Whatever is better for the country, I will go with that. I will see my form.

"There is pressure, media pressure. As a player, I am fit. As a captain, I am not fit."

Asked why Pakistan were eliminated before the semifinals, Afridi did not offer any excuses simply saying his team were not good enough.

Afridi said: "I think honestly speaking we were not good enough. I think we didn't play good cricket and if you look at the bowlers they've really done well but, later on, in the last four overs, we gave 40 runs so it's not good enough if you're playing against a world-class team."
