Karachi: Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has said that his team's defeat against arch-rivals India in the semifinals of World Cup 2011 at Mohali still haunted him and made him sad. (Afridi's T20 Charity Match Postponed Due to Stadium Renovation)
"We had played well until then and were just one step away from the final but it was a bad day for us and in the end we returned empty-handed. The defeat to India still haunts me and makes me sad," said Afridi.
Afridi was captain of the one-day and Twenty20 teams in 2010 and 2011, but in May 2011 he had a fall out with head coach Waqar Younis during the tour of the West Indies, and as a disciplinary measure, the Pakistan Cricket Board had removed him as skipper.
