No real talent in Pakistan’s domestic cricket: Shahid Afridi

Pakistan’s flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi is concerned about the future of Pakistan cricket and wants the PCB to go back to the basics and work at the grassroots level.

Afridi who stepped down as the national T20 captain last month after the team’s dismal shows in the Asia Cup and World T20 said he was worried that there was no real strong talent present in Pakistan’s domestic structure.

“The way I see it right now we don’t have that much real talent in the background. I can’t pinpoint any young player with certainty. I think the Board needs to pay attention to school cricket and work at grassroots level,” he said.

“I am just focussing on T20 cricket and I had informed the board about my commitment in English county cricket this summer. But I will obviously work hard on my form and fitness in order to make the Pakistan team,” Afridi said.
