Pakistan’s Twenty20 captain and popular all-rounder Shahid Afridi urged authorities not to chase after sporting arch-rival India to play a cricket series against his country, saying his team can play against other sides.

“I can’t understand why we are running after India,” Afridi told media during a training camp. “There are other bigger teams who we can play because we have invited India many times and if they don’t want to play we are still happy.”
