'India has never supported Pak': Afridi

Pakistan ODI and T20 skipper, Shahid Afridi, said that the Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) should stop relying on India or other Asian countries for support and become independent and solve its issues.

Afridi made the statement when he was questioned about the absence of the Pakistani national T20 champions from the Champions League T20.

"Leave alone the Champions League, tell me when has India ever supported Pakistan cricket?" Afridi told 'Geo Channel'.

"The truth is we have always been there to support India, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh but when time came for them to support us, they left us isolated.

"The truth is it is time we realised that not only India or Sri Lanka, Pakistan does not have many friends internationally and it is time we learnt to become self reliant and find solutions to problems ourselves," he added.

Yawar Saeed, who just recently resigned as Pakistan team manager, had criticised the ICC for its handling of the spot-fixing issue and pointed out that sadly Pakistan cricket was getting little support internationally.
