Afridi right choice to captain T20 team: Iqbal

LAHORE: The chairman national cricket selection committee Iqbal Qaism said Shaid Khan Afridi is the best option to captain national Twenty20 team following Younis Khanís stepping down as T20 captain.

Talking to media here at Gaddafi Stadium on Wednesday, he said Pakistan cricket team is rather experienced in one day cricket format as compared to Test cricket so Pakistan is expected to perform well against Sri Lanka in ODIs.

He hoped to set future course of action to bring betterment in Pakistan cricket after Sri Lanka tour, which will surely help form a formidable squad for Champions Trophy.

I am not agreed to Wasim Akramís statement that Shoaib Akhter career has come to end as a fit Shoaib is still a great national asset, he concluded.
