`I will not take any u-turn on retirement`: Afridi

Lahore: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has decided to stand his ground and make no u-turn regarding his decision to retire from international cricket.

Afridi had retired last month over clashes with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

However, a PCB disciplinary committee has now issued a no-objection certificate (NOC) to Afridi, which will make him available to play for England county Hampshire in the ongoing Friends Life Twenty20 league.

“Whatever I said, I will not take any u-turn on that. I will play domestic cricket if I am available,” a newspaper quoted Afridi, as saying.

The 31-year-old further said that he hopes to make a fresh start playing for Hampshire.

“The last 15 days were very difficult for me, but I have got the NOC to play in England and hope to put everything behind me,” Afridi said.
