It’s become definitely poor,” Afridi informed journalists of the ODI sequence against the West Indies later this particular month.

“Even my daughter has begun calling me Baba Boom Boom Out due to my bad batting capabilities,” he smiled .Afridi ended this year WC as the combined maximum wicket taker but flopped totally with the bat. ” It isn’t a simple tour and we’ll have to give our greatest to produce best outcomes,” he explained.
