'Afridi should lead Pak team only in T20'

May 16, 2011 09:40 IST

Former Pakistan cricketer, Sarfaraz Nawaz has said that the cricketer, Shahid Afridi should only lead the country's Twenty 20 squad.

"Even if Shahid Afridi was unhappy with the team that was selected in the last two one day internationals, his job was to lead the team to victory and make sure everyone gave 100%, but it was clear to see that he was not self motivated and couldn't motivate his team either. I believe that it's time for Afridi to step down from the one day captaincy and concentrate solely on leading the team in twenty over cricket," quoted him, as saying.

Nawaz was also criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board's decision of not allowing the chief selector Mohsin Khan to resign from his post. He also questioned as to why Mohsin Khan was not given showcause notice for threatening to resign for his differences with the board over the team selection.


He also laid stress on the need to review the on- tour team selection procedure. He recommended that the chief selector in consultation with ''on tour'' selection committee comprising the coach and captain should pick the final eleven players, on the criterion of merit.
