Afridi pulls out of South Africa's domestic T20 competition

Islamabad, Dec 16 : All-rounder Shahid Afridi is not going to take part in South Africa's domestic Twenty20 cricket league this season, according to reports.


According to The Express Tribune, Afridi, who is currently representing Pakistan in the series against Sri Lanka in the UAE, wants to spend time with his family.

The former national captain is one of the most sought after players in the shortest version of the game and he became the first player to make 1000 runs and take 50 wickets in the format during the on-going T20 series against Sri Lanka, the report said.

He was set to represent the Knights in South Africa's domestic T20 league, the report added.

With only all-rounder Sohail Tanvir and off-spinner Saeed Ajmal making up the contingent, Cricket South Africa are keen to invite more Pakistan players in the premier tournament after reaching an understanding earlier with the Pakistan Cricket Board, the report further said.
