LAHORE: Flamboyant all-rounder and former captain Shahid Afridi has said that he is always available to serve Pakistan cricket in whatever capacity his services are required.
Afridi, who was honored along with his former teammate Misbah-ul-Haq during the third match of the Independence series, said that Pakistan is always his priority.
“Pakistan and Pakistan cricket is always important for me, today I am here for Pakistan cricket and to thank the people who have been supporting Pakistan cricket,” Afridi told media in Lahore.
Afridi also said that he is happy that he was honored along side Misbah.
“I have always spoken for this trend, those who have served Pakistan cricket should be given a proper and memorable send-off,” said the former captain.
The flamboyant all-rounder took a lap of honor at Ghadaffi stadium on Friday during the innings break. The crowd cheered “Boom Boom Afridi” as the rickshaw drove him in front of different enclosures.
The former captain added that it is good to see cricket returning to Pakistan and PCB deserves credit for this.
“Good to see that cricket is back, I give credit to PCB. Hope these events are held in other cities as well.”
“I have always spoken to my county and other league teammates to encourage them for playing in Pakistan. Being an ambassador of Pakistan cricket, it is our duty to promote a positive image of Pakistan wherever we go,” Afridi said.
