LAHORE Pakistans Twenty20 cricket captain Shahid Afridi has reposed confidence in the team and has asked the senior players to perform to defend the T20 World Cup. Afridi said that the seniors should perform and the junior will follow suit. As a captain I always keep in mind that I should perform so that the juniors follow us, he believed. The team is working hard in the camp training and there are some gray areas he has noticed in the team recently and he will be discussing those with the team coach Waqar Younis, he said. Though he did not go in to details of the gray areas but identified running between the wickets as one of those need to looked at. To a question on the burning issue of Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza, the Pakistans Twenty20 cricket captain hoped that his beleaguered teammate would tide over the legal storm caused by a past affair gone wrong and bring his bride home. Since he has gone to India he must now bring his bride home, Afridi said. Malik is in a legal mess in Hyderabad after his alleged first wife Ayesha Siddiqui filed an FIR against him for trying to marry Indian tennis star Sania Mirza without taking a formal divorce. Commenting on the wedding of Malik and Sania, he said that now that the Pakistani groom has gone to India, he will not return without his bride. Shoaibs passport has been seized and the Hyderabad police questioned him for close to two hours on Monday. Afridi, who is dealing with his own share of problems after being slapped with a three million rupees fine by the Pakistan Cricket Board for indiscipline and ball-tampering, said he would not be hiring a lawyer to fight his case or file an appeal against the punishment. Afridi has said that he will not go to court against the punishment. But he would be asking the PCB for the reason of punishment because he cannot be penalized twice for one crime. I dont want to make an issue of this fine and I will try to resolve it myself. I dont want to get involved in hiring any lawyer as it will only complicate matters, he said. The Pakistani captain said he had only asked the board to clarify how they could fine him for an offence for which he had already got punishment from the ICC match referee. If I am satisfied with their answer I will not pursue this case any further, he said. The board has taken its decision, some players have been banned and some have been fined but I have told the players they must get over this phase and focus on doing well in the Twenty20 World Cup where we have to defend our title, Afridi added. He also rejected suggestions that the punishments handed out to the players would have a negative effect on their performance. We are all professionals and we are supposed to perform for our country and we need to overcome these pressures and fight on, he said.
