Karachi: Pakistan's flamboyant allrounder and national T20 captain Shahid Afridi may join the growing band of international cricketers who have opted to retire from other formats to focus only on T20 cricket.

Afridi told reporters at the national stadium that he could quit one-day internationals after the 2015 World Cup to focus only on T20 cricket.

"I might do this because the PCB has appointed me captain of the national T20 side until the World T20 in 2016 and I want to focus completely on building a strong team that is capable of winning back the title for Pakistan," Afridi said.
