“Sometimes there are bad pactches and periods for players, and for hitters, it is not necassary that they would come out and hit in every game. He always tried and when it came on the bat properly, it went for a six, so that is how it is. We have always seen off all our legends properly. But this situation is being mishandled. Afridi should retire on a high and the people need to give him the respect he deserves.”
