Boom Boom could be back for Pakistan ahead of India clash


Dropped all-rounder Shahid Afridi might be
reconsidered for Pakistan’s one-day international series against India, as the team prepared
for the short tour away to their arch-rivals. Afridi was picked only for the two Twenty20s
against India this month, but left out of the three one-dayers because he’d only scored
182 runs in 16 One Day Internationals and 50 of those runs was a half-century. But Afridi’s form has improved of late and
he has scored two further half-centuries in 50-over practice matches in the last three
days, including 90 off 64 balls on Wednesday to catch the eye of his captain. “I think we will consider(Afridi), we will
discuss this between team members. These type of players, especially this type of senior
and experienced player is very important. If his (Afridi) form remains like this and
we needed him, we will definitely consider him.” Pakistan leave for India on the 22nd December,
and the series begins with a Twenty20 at Bangalore on Christmas day.
