Afridi worried but determined to come back strongly

Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has admitted that his current lack of form is a source of problem for him. But the all-rounder  vowed to bounce back from his poor form in the ICC World Twenty20.

“I was unsatisfied with myself today with the performance against India in the warm-up game. It’s been a struggle for me in the previous couple of weeks. But I know I can make a robust return in this event,” Afridi said. “I am worried but I also understand that I can make a comeback. I’m optimistic of playing an impact part for my team in this World Cup,” he said.

The all-rounder fell for a 2nd ball duck and conceded 41 runs in his 4 overs against India after going back to the team after missing the recent Twenty20 series against Australia in the UAE due to a thumb problem. Afridi, 32, is the most experienced limited overs cricketer in the national team with 349 ODI appearances and 50 T20 games under his belt.

But in recent weeks he’s struggled with his bowling and batting, leading to rumors about his future in the squad.
