KARACHI Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has come out strongly in defence of players who were allegedly involved in 'spot-fixing and said that the allegations were based on speculations. He was talking to the media here on Friday at his residence soon after arriving here with three other members of the Pakistan team. Those who returned with the skipper were Fawad Alam, Asad Shafiq and Shahzad Hasan. The other members of the Pakistan team flew directly to Lahore from Dubai where they had arrived from England. As there was a big crowd at the airport arrival lounge and giving interview to the media was very difficult, Afridi requested the media personnel to come to his residence in Federal Area. The media men reached his residence and had a session with the skipper who, in his interview, hinted that he might overturn his decision to leave Test cricket. If the team needed him for Test, he may review his decision taken midway through the English tour to quit Test cricket, he said. He said that he would soon have a meeting with the PCB officials in Lahore where he would discuss many issues including returning to Test cricket. He appreciated the courage and strong will shown by the each member of the team in the second part of the English tour in which the Pakistani played the two Twenty20 and five ODI matches. Despite being under severe pressure because of the alleged allegations and public attention, the players played comparatively well under the given circumstances, he said. He said he had told the players that they had to concentrate on their game and give their best. He said it was tough tour and became tougher because of the intense media attention which came after the allegations were leveled against some of the players. But the players were not involved in any kind of allegations, he added. He added that the entire team rallied around him and played with concentration and showed exceptional courage to face the odds mostly off the field. Commenting on fast bowler Muhammad Irfan, he said the youngster had the potential but every player had to be good in other fields like fielding and batting besides his own specialty in modern cricket.
