The Pakistan Cricket Board should stop relying on India or any other Asian nation for support and become self reliant in solving its problems, says Pakistan’s ODI and Twenty20 skipper Shahid Afridi.
When asked about the absence of the Pakistani national Twenty20 champions from the Champions League Afridi said India has never been supportive of Pakistan cricket.
“Leave alone the Champions League, tell me when has India ever supported Pakistan cricket?” Afridi told ‘Geo Channel’.
Shahid Afridi said, “The truth is we have always been there to support India, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh but when time came for them to support us, they left us isolated.”
Shahid Afridi comment came after former team manager Yawar Saeed, who had on returning from London this week stated that Pakistan cricket had few friends in the world.
Shahid Afridi has also clarified that he will not be returning to the test cricket and. He said that he has lost the desire to play the longer format of the game.
