KARACHI: Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi Tuesday offered apology to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Shaharyar Khan after being slapped with show-cause notice over a statement creating confusion around the team captaincy.
“I fully support Misbahul Haq as a captain of the national team,” Shahid Afridi said in a meeting with the PCB chairman.
The 34-year-old all-rounder said that Misbahul Haq is the best choice as a captain till World Cup 2015.
Earlier, the PCB taking disciplinary action issued show-cause notice to Afridi.
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, had 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.
