ISLAMABAD (APP) Pakistan will be looking to defend the title in the Caribbean and the senior all-rounder and Pakistan Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi believes that their hope rests on the senior players. Afridi has asked the senior players in the side to inspire their young teammates at the World Twenty20 in the West Indies starting on April 30. The Twenty20 World Cup is a big event and we will need everybody to give their best in it, cricket365 quoted Afridi as saying, who was the star performer of the last years edition. Personally, I believe that the main responsibility will be on the senior players. They are ones who have the experience of playing in top-level events like the World Cup. He said experienced players like Abdul Razzaq, middle-order batsman Misbah-ul-Haq and wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal will have to deliver if Pakistan is to retain the title it won in England last June. I must say that our senior players like Razzaq, Misbah, Mohammad Asif, Umar Gul, Kamran Akmal will have to come out with their best in the West Indies. They can inspire the young boys in our team to shine in the tournament. The five of them together with Afridi are the most experienced players in the touring party that includes rookies like Umer Akmal and Mohammad Aamer. Afridi said since the senior players have ample big game experience, they should lead by example in the Caribbean where the 12-nation World Twenty20 will be played. Pakistan cricket has been dogged by controversies and a string of poor results in recent times but Afridi believes that his team has the potential to bounce back in the Caribbean. Im not making any promises which is why I wont say that we would go out there and lift the World Cup, he said. But what I want to make crystal clear is that we have to play for the country and if we do that then anything is possible. Afridi said that he and his players are well aware that Pakistan needs to produce good results to help the sport come out of the current crisis. We all know that Pakistan need good news on the cricket field. If we win the World Cup again we will be able to make millions of our countrymen happy. That is why Im urging my teammates to give their 100 percent effort in the training camp and later in the World Cup. I need them to fight like a unit because thats the only way to win a major event like the World Cup. Afridi said that he is encouraged by the appointment of Waqar Younis as coach and Ijaz Ahmed as his assistant, saying that the two former Test cricketers have the potential to turn the team into a winning unit. Both Waqar and Ijaz are really good coaches, he said. They know how to get the best out of the players. They are making us go that extra mile in the camp and thats a very positive change, he added.
