‘Our mindset was wrong’

Karachi: All-rounder Shahid Afridi has blamed the negative mindset of the team for Pakistan’s defeat at the hands of the West Indies in the must-win group league match of the World T20 in Bangladesh.

The defeat to the West Indies knocked Pakistan out of the tournament with former players and critics lashing out at the team for its appalling batting performance.

“It is the negative mindset of the players that brought about our downfall,” Afridi told reporters after returning from Dhaka with Moin Khan and Zaheer Abbas. Afridi dropped a clear hint without taking names that he was ready to accept the challenge of captaincy if given the chance.
