Afridi retires?
« on: May 30, 2011, 06:59:49 PM »

Afridi has retired from international cricket

Seems strange as it's not as if he has an ipl contract something must have happened as he is only 31 and had a fantastic world cup

I think this is the 2nd or 3rd time he's retired. He'll be back again, in a search for notoriety and cash.

Waste of a fantastic talent.

Don't panic, all pakistani players have to retire at least 4 times before they stop playing international cricket.

He'll be back.

Again.

I think someone is looking for some attention...

He joins Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf etc in short term retirement. Give him a week

There is issue going on.

It was expected!

As far people who say he did it for cash they must be nuts! The amount of wealth and money he has is probably uncountable for you guys!!!

Apparently it's in protest against the current board, says it doesn't respect its players.

So expect him to return whenever crazy Ijaz Butt and co get overthrown.

You are missing the point COvers - it's all so boring every time a Pakistani cricketer retires in protest against the board.

It's not news, it's soap opera - and he's one of the worst.

He'll be back, it's just yawn inducing, and we've all seen it before.

Mate with all due respect you have made it very clear you are from a wealthy background, you really don't have to keep reminding us.

Grow up John, he might not be the finest exponent of the Queen's English but I am sure you got what he meant. The is a lot which is lost in translation. Why do you assume the worst in people?

Yeah - but who cares?  who is he to issue ultimatums to his board? He's not bigger than the Pakistani game, and he should learn that - fast!

Hopefully it's another cheat out of the game, can't se him sticking to his word though, Pakistani players have a massive problem with being honest.
