Afridi Wants Miandad as Batting Coach

Pakistan cricket team one-day international captain Shahid Khan Afridi said that senior players including Kamran Akmal should be given rest on the tours of West Indies and Zimbabwe.

He said that he wants to acquire services of Javed Miandad as batting coach.

Talking with media in Lahore, Afridi said that he has no intention of returning to Test cricket but he would make efforts to give chances to young players on foreign tours.

He said that his team needs a batting coach for which negotiations with Miandad are under way.

The skipper further said that a squad consists of seniors and juniors should be announced for the tour of the West Indies but along side new openers and wicketkeeper should also be tried.

He said this is not easy to fill the vacuum created by Shoaib Akhtar’s retirement.

Replying to another question, Afridi said that not availing power play in the semi-final against India was a part of the plan.
