Shaheen Shah Afridi, a Pakistani pacer, has voiced his wish to play at the highest level again after missing a lot of games due to injuries.

Afridi, who intends to compete in the PSL’s eighth season, is optimistic that the Lahore Qalandars can retain their title after winning it for the first time under his leadership last year.
He said, “We are a very good side and I am confident that we’ll produce better results than before. I am very happy with the team, as we have overcome where we lacked last year and I believe that Qalandars are stronger this time.
“The PSL is the biggest brand for Pakistan and I am looking forward to making my full comeback during that tournament.”
