Afridi said that we had good young players like Umar Akmal, Ahmad Shehzad, Wahab Riaz who are very promising with their goals, my team is a mixture of some experienced guys although they have no experienced in playing world cup before this like Misbah – ul – Haq, Saeed Ajmal and Abdur Rehman, but I see us as the most dangerous side at the World Cup. He also said that he would show good cricket in world cup and confine the critics regarding his performance and captaincy records.
Afridi's own World Cup record is poor. In 12 games, spread over three tournaments, he averages 11.36 with the bat and 39.85 with the ball, an aberration he is keen to rectify. "I've not been good at past World Cups, but my role and position has never been fully settled going into them. I go into this feeling better and much more positive and, importantly, my role and place is clearer than it has been in past tournaments. There are good times and bad times but I'm hoping this will be a good World Cup for us.
