Pakistan has peaked at the right time: Shahid Afridi
MIRPUR: Pakistan’s all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi said on Thursday that Pakistan has peaked at the right time in the tournament, and this would help them at the upcoming mega event ‘World Twenty20’, ARY News has learnt.
Talking to media after practice session on Thursday, Shahid Afridi said that focus of team Pakistan is just on the Asia Cup final at the moment.
When Afridi asked that Pakistan have never beaten India in an ICC world event, be it the 50-over World Cup or the World T20, could they overcome the curse when they meet in the World Twenty20 on March 21, he replied that he wouldn't think about it till the Asia Cup ended.
“I'm not looking that ahead and when the World Twenty20 comes, we will talk about the India-Pakistan then", he added.
Talking about the newly hired coaches, the all rounder said having played at this level for so many years, he doesn't need a coach and he better off coaching myself. I know very well what to do and what not to do.
When asked about his plan for retirement from cricket, Afridi it had not entered his mind yet.
“As long as I'm fit and give my life to cricket, I'll continue playing the sport. I will sideline myself the moment I start thinking that I'm becoming a burden on my team. I will not give anyone an opportunity to talk”, he added.
