Teammates were busy ogling at girls: Shahid Afridi

Pakistan T20 Skipper Shahid Afridi has alleged that some of his teammates were busy ogling girls and loafing around the border line line, not giving their 100 % in the team's unsuccessful tour of Australia earlier this year.

The leaked video tape of Pakistan Cricket Board's investigations showed Shahid Afridi questioning the pledge of some of his teammates, even though he said all the talks about match-fixing is something he too has heard but never found any evidence of.

"Some of the players, once they have made some honest runs with the bat, would think their job is done and would go to field in the deep," Afridi was shown as speaking.

"There they would be hectic chatting with the crowd, ogling girls and giving autographs. I have identified some players doing that. They just play for themselves," said Afridi, who was part of the team that lost all One day Internationals in Australia.

He was also dangerous of the then coach Intikhab Alam.

"Coach told me to lead the team in the fifth ODI just 40 minutes before the match and put needless pressure to win the toss."

"He said it would be all gloom and doom if we lose the toss. I interrupted him and asked why he was demoralizing players even before the toss? Why it would be all gloom and doom even if we just lose the toss?" Afridi asked.

On whether some of his teammates were involved in match-fixing, Afridi said, "I can say that more than being beaten, we gave away those matches."

"About match-fixing, I too have heard but have no evidence," said the all-rounder.
