Afridi slams injury talks

Shahid Afridi rubbished reports that he had been carrying a shoulder injury for the past few months, and expressed his desire to continue playing in ODI and T20 formats until the Pakistani all-rounder is able to give a 100 per cent to the team.

“The talk about me having fitness problems is rubbish. I have played Pakistan for the last 15 to 16 years almost injury free. The day I feel I can’t give 100 per cent to the team, I will stop playing,” Afridi, said.

The former Pakistan captain, who was man of the match in the Asia Cup final last week, insisted that he had outlined his future plans.

“I will only continue playing ODIs until my presence is beneficial for the team. I will quit ODI cricket the moment I feel that I am no more at the peak of my game. After that, I will just concentrate on T20 matches,” the former captain said.
