Dubai: A day after coach Waqar Younis’ public apology, Pakistan’s under-fire cricket captain Shahid Afridi also sought forgiveness from the people of his country for failing to live upto their expectations during a shambolic World Twenty20 campaign in India.
“I don’t care what other people say about me but I am
answerable to you (people of Pakistan). Today, I, Shahid Afridi, seek forgiveness from the people of Pakistan for not living upto the expectations that you had from this team and me,” Afridi said in a brief video message on his official Twitter page.
Afridi, who is currently in Dubai, is set to be sacked as captain once he returns to the country.
The flamboyant all-rounder is also expected to announce a decision on his cricketing future after the Pakistan Cricket Board made it clear that his place in the side is not guaranteed.
