ISLAMABAD: Pakistan cricket’s new chief Zaka Ashraf has said that he thinks Shahid Afridi still has plenty to offer as a one-day player.
“As a Pakistan national and as a cricket viewer I think Afridi is very good one-day player,” Ashraf told reporters.
Shahid Afridi quit international cricket after developing differences with former Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt and ex-coach Waqar Younis.
Afridi made himself available for national selection after Ashraf took over from Butt earlier this month and Younis stepped down due to personal reasons.
New PCB chief Zaka Ashraf said he and Afridi will meet soon to discuss the player’s future. “He has contacted me, but I could say something only after we both meet with each other,” he said.
Pakistan is currently playing a test series against Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates and it is likely Afridi’s fate would be decided before the one-day series begins on November 11 in Dubai.
