“I am honoured and thrilled to lead our national T20 cricket team. Thank you to the Pakistan cricket board and fans for their trust and support,” he wrote, adding that he will give his best to bring glory to the country. 

“Our success lies in unity, trust and relentless effort. We are not just a team; we are a brotherhood, a family,” Afridi said while emphasising on unity.
