Karachi: Former Pakistan cricketer team captain Shahid Afridi advised following in the footsteps of great Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid to improve his country’s young talent.

Speaking at an event in Lahore, Afridi said Rahul Dravid has worked hard with young Indian players under the age of 19.
Afridi said: “ I think we are facing a shortage of great talent, so whatever young people come in we have to be properly fed by our old greats. They can do a lot with these young players.
He said great players like Inzamam-ul-Haq, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yusuf can do a lot to hone Pakistan’s young cricketing skills.
On the issue of Mohammad Aamir and his refusal to play under the supervision of Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis, Afridi said it was a chronic problem in Pakistani cricket.
He said, “Even in my day bowlers had problems with coaches. There are obvious issues with my concern. I think this can only be stopped when the Pakistan Cricket Board talks to these angry players and listens to them.
