Delaying the departure: Afridi’s calls to retire gets outdated

Shahid

 

Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi has said he is facing “huge pressure” from family and friends to not retire from international cricket in April at the end of the World T20 in India. Afridi, who will turn 36 on March 1, plays only T20 internationals for Pakistan and is now reconsidering his decision to quit the format. After the 2015 World Cup, Afridi had announced his intention to retire from international cricket following the World T20, but now it appears he has not made up his mind. “I’m not saying that,” he told ESPNcricinfo in Dubai, when asked if he was going to continue playing. “I am saying there is a lot of pressure on me that I shouldn’t retire from T20. That I can play on, and as such there is no real talent coming through in Pakistan whose place I am taking. If Afridi, the current Pakistan captain for the T-20 format, chooses to delay his departure, he will be placing himself at the disposal of the selectors. This would be an uncomfortable situation for sensitive fans who would want their hero to walk away with his head held high instead of being dropped. But should this be the deciding factor given the changes the industry has gone through?The case highlights a general trend where cricketers in their late 30s and beyond feel they are still fit enough for a T-20 game that is spread over just three and half hours. And it pays well both in terms of money and fame. At 36 and still able to whack a few out of the ground, it is not too surprising that Shahid Afridi thinks he can extend his career by a few more seasons. It’s increasingly and primarily an individual’s decision. Calls to retire may be outdated, even if there are concerns that a cricketer is no longer in top form. It must be realised that the change in the game’s format could well prove there is still a lot of cricket left in the individual.
