“There is no cricketing talent in the country. I am still better than the players currently playing for Pakistan,” Afridi said.

The firebrand cricketer said that there is no issue if he was not selected in the Pakistan’s national team. He added that he was never a burden over the team.

“I have played with respect and will retire with respect,” he added.
