Pakistan opener Imran Nazir has advised all-rounder Shahid Afridi to take a rest from worldwide cricket to recuperate his confidence and form.”I think Pakistan definitely needs him but not in this form. His energy and enthusiasm is important for the team and he needs to get it back,” Nazir said.
Afridi was lately came by the nation’s selectors for that one-day series in India. These were hopes when he carried out well within the two T20 matches he’d be maintained for that one-day series too but following a sluggish performance both in games he came back home luckless on Saturday.
The previous Pakistan captain continues to be dealing with a tough patch in batting and bowling in recent several weeks and also the greatest debate in Pakistani cricket circles has become about his future being an worldwide player.
Pakistan’s experienced all-rounder Abdul Razzaq also backed Afridi, insisting he must have been maintained for that one-day series. Razzaq, who had been also dropped for that T20 and ODI series against India, stated that Afridi’s experience was still being invaluable towards the team and that he must be given some confidence.
