Shaheen Shah Afridi, the captain of the Lahore Qalandars, agrees that fast bowlers can be aggressive and angry on the field. When you’re the team captain, however, he believes you have to keep it under check. “I need to maintain my cool while working hard to improve my performance. If my performance improves, I will be able to advise others on how to improve theirs, “Afridi stated. Speaking to the media at the end of the Lahore Qalandars pre-camp on Tuesday, Afridi stated that as a captain, he makes sure that the entire team follows suit. “The responsibility increases,” he said, adding that while there is no pressure, the responsibility must still be taken up by the captain. “I am receiving a lot of assistance from Muhammad Hafeez. He is a senior member of the team. I ask him and learn what is favourable for me,” said the fast bowler. Speaking about the Lahore Qalandars’ pre-camp, Afridi stated that the camp was helpful because it allowed him to gain a better understanding of the players and their personal qualities, as well as for them to gain a better understanding of him. Shaheen Afridi named captain of Lahore Qalandars In December last year, star fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi was named the captain of the Lahore Qalandars for the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Shaheen Shah Afridi had said that he is looking forward to captaining Lahore Qalandars in the PSL if given the opportunity. He lauded the management of Lahore Qalandars during a virtual press conference, hailing it as “exceptionally good.” “It’s thrilling to perform for the Lahore Qalandars, I’ve been playing with them for a number of years,” he had said.
