I don’t exactly know what was the exact questions that was asked to Mohammd Yousuf. As a batting coach, yeh toh usi ka domain banta hai. Rizwan ke baare mein, main pehle bhi mashwara de chuka hu ki kisi duusre ladke ko chance de,” Afridi mentioned on Samaa TV.
“Main yeh nahi keh raha ki Rizwan ko drop kar diya jaaye lekin usko rest zaruur karaya ja sakta hai. Aap Test series haar gaye ho. Teesra match Karachi mein hai toh aap yaha chance de sakte hain. Why not Sarfaraz? Shan Masood… chances should be given. (Mohammad Yousuf is the batting coach, right? So obviously, if the players do not perform, he will be asked questions. As a batting coach, this is his domain. And about Rizwan, I have already said that the time has come to maybe give other players an opportunity. I am not saying drop Rizwan altogether from Tests, but he can be rested. You have lost the series and the third Test is in Karachi, so why not bring in someone like a Sarfaraz or Shan Masood).”
