Pakistan T20 skipper Shahid Afridi on Friday thanked cricket legends Imran Khan and Wasim Akram for giving an extra push to the national side ahead of the 2016 World T20 tournament.

In his latest tweet, Afridi praised Pakistani legends for their support.



The 36-year-old admitted Pakistan had not done well in recent matches; however, he is hopeful the team will perform well in the tournament.
