Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi announced that he will be officially retiring from international cricket after the next year’s T20 World Cup in India.

“I want to not only play but also captain the Pakistan team to the T20 World Cup title,” said Afridi, who was earlier named the captain by the Pakistan Cricket Board for the mega event.

Having called it quits in the longer versions of the sport, Afridi has decided to give his career a “happy ending” next year.

“Who does not want a happy ending to his career? I am looking at that in the T20 format. I never thought I would be at this level and play cricket for Pakistan team,” he added.

Afridi, 35, has represented Pakistan in 77 T20Is so far, scoring 1142 runs and taking 73 wickets in all.
