Posted By: Staff

Islamabad, July 14 (ANI): Pakistani all rounder Shahid Afridi, who is on a new high after helping his team win the Twenty20 World Cup, has said that he wants to be remembered as the country's craziest cricketer.

In an interview with DawnNews, Afridi said: "I would like them to remember me as the craziest cricketer that ever played for Pakistan," Afridi said.

Replying to a question about his idol, he said: "I think Viv Richards is every cricketer's idol. But there are so many cricketers that I admire like, Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Saeed Anwar."

When asked about playing for New South Wales in Australian T20 league, Afridi said that he has not been contacted by the NSW yet, but will decide on joining the team once an offer is made.

Afridi also has plans to coach players in Karachi and is in talks with the City District Government Karachi to acquire a plot where he can have a cricket ground and practice pitches.

"I think it is my responsibility to share my experience and knowledge with young cricketers. Hopefully, I will start something soon."

Commenting on taking on the captaincy of Pakistan T20 and ODI team, he said: "Obviously, I will be very happy to accept it. It will be a big responsibility but I am ready to take it, if offered. I will have to take it if Younis doesn't continue." (ANI)
