KARACHI:

Pakistan one-day skipper Shahid Afridi has said that some elements are trying to destabilise the Pakistan cricket team.


Talking to the media at his residence after returning from England, Afridi said it was one of the most difficult tours for him as a captain, as he had to handle the team as well as the foreign media.


He said Pakistan has given foreign media a chance to attack the team, adding that some other players were also quizzed following allegations.


He stressed that no Pakistani player is involved in corruption, adding that players have to take a stand and make themselves strong.


The skipper said Shoaib Akhtar has had a good comeback and the pacer is in excellent form.


Afridi said the morale of the players is high and the team has shown improvement.


However, he said the team was weak in fielding, which eventually turned out to be the main reason for the team’s loss.
