Miffed Afridi retires, calls PCB officials disgraceful

 KARACHI, May 31 (PTI): Angry at being removed as Pakistan's ODI captain, temperamental all-rounder Shahid Afridi has retired from international cricket, insisting he would return only if "disgraceful" administrators of the PCB quit.

"The people have given me lot of respect and love and I don't want to waste that working with this board who don't know how to respect players," Afridi fumed.

In a scathing attack on the Pakistan Cricket Board, the 31-year-old described the current set of administrators as "disgraceful people".

The experienced all-rounder said he will not play international cricket till the time the present PCB under the chairmanship of Ijaz Butt is in place.

"I want to make it clear that till this board is there, I will not play international cricket. When it goes and if people want me to play on I will consider a comeback," he said.
