Karachi: Pakistan's senior batsman and former captain Shoaib Malik has said maverick all-rounder Shahid Afridi is the best person to replace Misbah-ul-Haq as skipper for next year's World Cup.

Malik, 32, said that if the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wanted to change the captain of the national one-day team it should do it immediately.

"I don't know what the board has in mind but if they are thinking about changing the captaincy they should do it now because there is little time left before the World Cup," Malik said.
