ISLAMABAD (AP) Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez hopes Shahid Afridi will be fit in time for the World Twenty20 after the hard-hitting allrounder delayed his departure to Bangladesh.
Afridi played in the Asia Cup final on Saturday with painkillers after he hurt his hamstring with some powerful late hitting during two nail-biting victories against India and Bangladesh last week.
"As a captain I need a fit Afridi, and that's why we have given him time to rehab," Hafeez said on Wednesday.
