Boom Boom Afridi Wants Pakistan To Stop Pushing For India Series

Pakistan Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi said Friday he needs his nation’s cricket board to quit supporting for a test arrangement against India and focus more on convincing different groups to visit Pakistan.

The Pakistan Cricket Board is as yet sitting tight for the green light from its Indian partner for December’s arranged test and restricted overs arrangement in the United Arab Emirates.

Both nations’ cricket loads up have consented to an arrangement to play no less than six times from 2015-2023, yet the India load up necessities its administration’s approbation to restore cricketing ties with Pakistan.

“I don’t know why we are pushing for arrangement against India over and over,” Afridi told columnists in Lahore amid Pakistan’s short preparing camp in front of one week from now’s constrained overs visit to Zimbabwe. “I don’t see any motivation to play (against India) in the event that they would prefer not to play. We have welcomed them and in the event that they would prefer not to play then it shouldn’t be any stress, we are still cheerful.”

The last time both groups played a test arrangement was in 2007 when Pakistan visited India. Pakistan last facilitated India for a test arrangement in 2006.

Pakistan has planned Twenty20 internationals against Zimbabwe, England and New Zealand in front of the World Twenty20 competition in India next March and April, after which Afridi has said he will stop playing the briefest cricket position. Afridi has officially quit playing ODIs taking after Pakistan’s misfortune in the Cricket’s quarterfinals World Cup in Australia in March.

Pakistan cricket selectors have included youngster left-arm quick bowler Imran Khan Jr. also, offspinner Bilal Asif for the two Twenty20s against Zimbabwe not long from now keeping in mind the end goal to begin getting prepared for one year from now’s occasion in India.

“The thought is to experiment with new players and there are number of players who inspired me in National Twenty20 competition this week,” Afridi said.

Imran took 16 wickets in the competition and assumed a key part in the last when his Peshawar squad won the trophy over the Karachi side drove by Afridi.

Asif took nine wickets in the national competition.

In May, Zimbabwe turned into the first test nation to visit Pakistan since 2009, when shooters assaulted the Sri Lanka group transport. The Zimbabweans played three ODIs and two Twenty20s in Lahore.

With top-level global cricket an irregularity in Pakistan, Afridi said it would have been exceptional if the Pakistan Cricket Board had chosen to have next February’s inaugural Twenty20 Pakistan Super League at home as opposed to picking Doha, Qatar, as the venue.

“It would have been awesome had it been sorted out in Pakistan in light of the fact that we were discussing restoration of cricket in Pakistan after the voyage through Zimbabwe,” he said.

“Our players would have profited more had it been sorted out in Pakistan. I am not stressed whether outside players come or not, but rather at any rate the group will come and our own youths get an open door.”
