Shahid Afridi vows to quit if he becomes a 'burden on the team'

Afridi was included in Pakistan's initial 30-man squad for the Champions Trophy to be held in England in June, but must perform in the ongoing national one-day cup to make the final 15 to be announced next month. He said he would quit for younger players to come through if he does not perform.

Karachi: Veteran Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi said on Thursday that he is targeting the 2015 World Cup after returning to the Pakistan side, but vowed to quit if he became a burden on the team.
