ISLAMABAD: Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi said he wanted to lead the side from the front when his team will play against India on Saturday.
“I always gave importance to my performances because it is important for my team,” Afridi told reporters on Friday.
“My main strength is my bowling but I understand that where I bat I can also contribute for the team and that is important.
“Whether it is 20 or 30 runs but it is important as it all counts,” Afridi added.
“I am not thinking what we have done against India in the past because I don’t live in the past,” he said.
On the reports of his retirement, Afridi responded, “I think for me the Asia Cup and the World Cup (World T20) is more important than my retirement. I am focusing on that at the moment.”
