Shahid Afridi wants to comeback in the Pakistan squad

Pakistan all-rounder, Shahid Afridi, has been going through a tough phase. The 33-year-old player is struggling hard to make his comeback in the national squad announced for the upcoming tours of Scotland, Ireland and England for the Champions Trophy in June. He has been dropped from the squad along with batsman Umar Akmal and fast bowler Sohail Tanvir.
Shahid Afridi claims that he is still better than most. However, he is out of form now. He was left out of Pakistan’s squad for the ODI series in India in December 2012. However, he was selected in the squad for South Africa as a leg-spinner. Due to his poor form, he was not the regular member of the Pakistan squad.
He cannot perform well both with batting and bowling. He will have to prove his skill to make his place in the squad and it is going to be a big challenge.
