Shahzad threatens to quit cricket after WC axe
Mohammad Shahzad has threatened to quit cricket after being declared unfit for the rest of the World Cup by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB). The 32-year-old said medical advice he had received said he would have been fit to play in a few of days after having his knee drained. “If they don’t want me to play, I will quit cricket,”
Shahzad told local media. “I don’t see myself playing anymore. If they
(ACB) have a problem, they should let me know. I went to a doctor in London and he said that I could play after resting for two-three days.
I was removed from the
2015 World Cup and now this one as well.
My heart isn’t in cricket anymore.”
Meanwhile, ACB chief executive Asadullah Khan said that the team’s priority was picking match-fit players.
