KARACHI – Former skipper Shahid Afridi has once again reiterated his belief that his career was not over adding that he could still play at highest level.

“I don’t think my career is over and I am enjoying myself and I will continue to play at the highest level. As far as Pakistan selection is concerned that is for the selectors to decide,” he said in an interview.

The star cricketer clarified that he would not ask for a farewell match by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as he played for the country instead of the board.

“I have played 20 years of international cricket for Pakistan and not the PCB. I am not dependent on anyone for a match. The love and support I have got and get from my well wishers and fans is enough reward for me,” he said.

Shahid Afridi stepped down from Pakistan cricket team’s T20 captaincy after the team’s disappointing performance at the World T20 2016 held in India. He represented Pakistan in 398 One-Day Internationals (ODIs), 17 Tests and 98 T20Is and some experts believe that Afridi could be given two One Day International matches for him to clinch the 400 ODI’s target.
