Shahid Afridi vows to play and quit on own terms
Lahore: Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has said he would play on his own terms and quit on his own terms after being given a possible last chance to improve his performance in one-day matches.
Afridi, who quit Test cricket in 2010, was recalled for Pakistan``s five-match one-day series against South Africa, with the country``s chief selector Iqbal Qasim warning it could be the last chance for some players, including Afridi, reports The News.
Afridi has been under pressure to perform after being dropped from the one-day team for the India tour in December last year. He was then selected for Twenty20s only.
The batsman, who holds a world record for smashing a 37-ball century in a one-day match against Sri Lanka in 1996, failed to hit a 50 in his last 12 one-day matches and captured only seven wickets. Pakistan will play five one-day internationals against South Africa, the first starting in Bloemfontein on March 10.
Afridi has so far scored 7,075 runs in 349 one-day matches with 348 wickets - the most in the 15-man one-day squad announced for South Africa. He has 845 runs and 63 wickets in 58 Twenty20 internationals.
