India will be handed USD 175,000 for finishing as the No.1 Test side while also pocketing one more USD 75,000 for finishing as 2nd-ranked ODI team this season, the ICC said today.

Afridi should return to Test cricket: Imran Khan

Pakistan's ODI & T20 skipper Shahid Afridi should return to Test cricket and captain the national team in all three formats of the sport, former skipper Imran Khan said.

Afridi pulled out of a Test series against Australia last year in England after losing the 1st Test at Lord's as skipper.

Since then he has only captained Pakistan in one-day internationals and Twenty20 cricket matches. Senior batsman Misbah-ul-Haq led Pakistan in their last two Test series against South Africa and New Zealand.

Afridi, who led Pakistan to the semi-finals of the World Cup that ended on Saturday, has made himself available for this month's tour to the West Indies after previously planning on missing the series.

"There should be just one captain for all three formats of the game," Imran told reporters at a function held in Lahore to honour Pakistan's World Cup umpire Aleem Dar.

"The main reason for India winning the World Cup is that their captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni leads them in Tests, ODIs and T20 cricket," the cricketer turned politician said.

Imran said that Dhoni had matured quicker as a captain because he had developed the temperament to handle the different pressures of the three formats.

"Afridi must also be captain in all three formats of the sport. My belief is that unless you captain in Test cricket you can't really be at the top of your game," he said.
