  • "By my making an announcement saying that I've retired, it doesn't mean that it's a permanent thing,"
  • I made a mistake in speaking to the media and passing remarks when I was clearly emotional. I never had any problems with Hafeez and I accept that my outburst against him was unfair. I have already apologised for it.
  • I was disappointed sitting outside while the team was losing the match ... I know the team management didn't drop me, it was Hafeez who left me out. He should speak up and admit his decision..
  • I will be careful in the future.
  • Afridi was told by the PCB not to hold any such media conference ... He was reminded about the central contract clause which bars a player from such acts without the board’s permission. The PCB officials did it to avoid further controversy in the World Twenty20 fall-out. It’s already unimpressed by Abdul Razzaq’s outburst regarding Mohammad Hafeez..
