New Delhi: Veteran Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi on Tuesday appealed the media to support Pakistan cricket and also expressed his support for Misbah-ul-Haq for the post of captaincy.

Afridi, who was the highest wicket taker in ICC World Cup 2011 along with Zaheer Khan, expressed his thoughts through his personal account on social micro-blogging site Twitter.

 

Notably, earlier in the day, Pakistan`s cricket chief Shaharyar Khan hit out at Afridi for creating confusion around the team captaincy and said he could face disciplinary action.

Afridi, who led Pakistan in the third and final one-day international against Australia after regular captain Misbah-ul Haq withdrew because of poor batting form, said a final decision should be made on who would lead the team.

"Misbah or me, whoever is to lead Pakistan in the World Cup he should know it now," Afridi said after Pakistan`s one-run defeat which handed Australia a 3-0 series win in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
