WATCH: SORRY, NO TALENT! Shahid Afridi blasts Pakistan cricket in epic rant

New Delhi: Senior cricketer Shahid Afridi had some harsh words not just for Pakistan's cricket administrators but the team's players as well.

In an interview with BBC Urdu, the former skipper did not hold back as he discussed the state of cricket in the country in a frank and forthright manner.

Boom Boom said he did not retire post the ICC WT20 since he felt he was much better than some of the players in the squad.

Afridi claimed he wanted to leave a capable team behind. But looking at the players coming through, he thought he was definitely more capable of commanding a place in the team.

The all-rounder then went on to state that the talk about there being plenty of talent in Pakistan is simply not true.

The 36-year-old said the quality of the player pool in Pakistan cricket does not match the international standard.

He wanted to say more but maintained restrained due to his contract with the Pakistan Cricket Board.

On retiring however, Afridi promised to spill all the beans about how badly the sport was governed in the country.
