Karachi: In a bid to get back into form for the upcoming tours to India and South Africa, Pakistan's flamboyant allrounder, Shahid Afridi has decided to end a two year break from first class cricket and appear in the country's premier first class tournament.

A senior official of Habib Bank for whom Afridi plays in domestic cricket said they had been asked by the allrounder to include him in the squad for the first class tournament.

"Initially we had not sent his name in the 20 member squad as he last played first class matches in 2010. But we have now asked the cricket board for special permission to allow us to replace left arm Abdul Rehman with Afridi in the squad," the official said.
