Ppi/express May 25, 2010

LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday appointed Shahid Afridi as captain for the upcoming Asia Cup and England tour on Tuesday.

This was revealed by Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board Ijaz Butt while talking exclusively to Express.

The Asia Cup will start in Sri Lanka from June 15 after which the Pakistani team will leave for England, where it will play against England and Australia in Twenty20, one day and test matches.

Meanwhile Afridi said he wants to focus more on his bowling in Test matches.

"I will focus more on my bowling as I think I can contribute more in this department than batting in the longer version of the game,'' said Afridi who reversed his self- exile from Test recently.

Pakistan will play two Test matches against Australia and four against England during their three-month long tour of Britain.
