Shahid Afridi said that Sarfraz XI has achieved great victories but recently they cannot perform well, which is why Pakistanis should support the national team as the boys need it.

Former Captain advised the current team by saying that Sarfraz and his team must not worry about the criticism, as everyone gets criticized one time or another, but they should take it as a challenge and still play calmly. Once the team starts performing better, the criticism will change into praise automatically.
Afridi asked the nation to support the young players as they are the future of our team and they will be playing in the upcoming world cup. He added the boys will not be able present a good game as long as we keep on criticizing them- so we should support them and I think they will not only defeat Bangladesh but win the final against India to make the Asia Cup 2018 title ours.
