Shahid Afridi might retire from international cricket

Shahid Afridi, former captain of Pakistan hints at a possible agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board which could make him a delicate exit from all international cricket.

“I have put no pressure on the Board nor they on me but whatever happens it will be good and set new precedents,” he said.

He had discussed his future with chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq who had given him a  plan to think about.

“I have always noted that in Pakistan there is no tradition of players retiring gracefully, even the big names. Every player wants to go out on a high and I am no different,” he said.

According to rumors to believe the boards and selectors might include Afridi in the national T20 squad for the coming series against the West Indies in the UAE . After that all-rounder would get the farewell in Dubai at the end of this month.
Afridi has already retired from the Test and 50-over formats of international cricket.

“Players must exit respectfully since the ones who serve the country with distinction deserve honour. I have had a discussion with Inzi Bhai (Inzamamul Haq) who is an elder to me and we will do what is beneficial to both Pakistan cricket and my own self,” he said.
