Karachi: Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi came down heavily on ICC for holding the next Twenty20 just nine months later, leaving Pakistani fans very little time to savour the triumph.
"Nobody wants World Cup everyday," he said. "I think cricket is now being treated more like a business. It is hard on the players as well." said Afridi, who won the man-of-the-match award in both the semifinal and final, said on his return home today.
Afridi, who is favoured to become next Pakistan T20 captain said that he was little disappointed at not winning the player of the tournament award.

The 29-year-old all-rounder dedicated his inspiring performances in the World Twenty20 triumph to victims of the conflict in his troubled nation.
"Throughout the world cup I only thought about winning this for those people who have been affected by terrorism in our country," Afridi told reporters on Wednesday.
