Shahid Afridi has made a decline towards his bowling and batting performances in the past few years. He has still been a part of the Pakistan cricket team. Now once again he is under severe criticism over his individual performances as well as his role as the captain of Pakistan cricket team.
Shahid Afridi had a mix World t20 as far as his batting was concerned. He performed poorly with the ball and did not take many wickets. He also posted no threats to the international teams. Pakistan looked a weak unit under his captaincy.
Afridi posted a few good innings but they were not sufficient enough to give Pakistan some victories. Pakistan played 4 pool games and lost three of them. They only won the game against Bangladesh which was their opening game in the World T20.
Afridi who was once known for hitting big shots in abundance now clearly struggles to hit them. Afridi only hit a handful of sixes in the World T20. He looked confused most of the times in the center. There was no plan seen within the Pakistani games.
Afridi will remain a hero for many and especially for the Pathans. At his arrival at the Karachi airport today, there were his fans present and despite all the poor performances of him and his team, the people opened up their arms for him. Afridi received a warm welcome and is now the second player who has been given such a pleasuring treat. Amir as the first one rest of them all faced a huge insult.
