“The team performed really well in both limited overs series in the West Indies,” he said. “I think Sarfraz was very good with his captaincy, but he needs to carry everyone forward.”

Afridi, who represented Pakistan in 98 T20Is, also cleared the air regarding his Karachi Kings joining by saying that: “Since I live in Karachi, I joined Karachi Kings.”
