Shahid Afridi Confident That Pakistan Will Win The #T20WorldCup
Afridi while discussing Pakistan’s chances in the ICC T20 world cup said, “The team which will go for the 2022 World Cup in Australia has all the required skills, such as bowling strength, all-rounders along with players who can play attacking cricket. The pitches are also good in Australia so I’m hoping that this team will produce a good result.
“The important thing is man management; coaching comes after that. The players have already played international cricket so it is all about managing them. I think Saqlain [Mushtaq] and Mohammad Yousuf are doing a great job. Whenever I talk to players, they always say that management is really good. I don’t hear any negative stuff which is a good sign.
Afridi also talked about Pakistan’s victory in the prestigious tournament during the year 2009. While praising Younis Khan he said, “Seniors and captain played a very important role in ensuring that the team remains motivated despite a tough start. We all supported Younis Khan, who was leading the side. The Sri Lankan team incident had already taken place and no cricket was being played in Pakistan which is why our people had high expectations from us.”
