Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis believes that the World T20 Cup in India represents the last opportunity for Captain Shahid Afridi to win a major title. Earlier in the month, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shahryar Khan, was very critical of the performances of the side, stating that it was extremely depressing to watch them play in that manner.“Shahid is at the twilight of his career and I think this is the last chance for him to win something big,” Waqar told the media in Lahore on Friday shortly after the Pakistan government gave clearance to the PCB to send the team to India”.The former Test captain expressed relief at the team getting clearance to fly to India. “It is a good development because we want to go to India and do well there. We are looking forward to the match with India on March 19,” Waqar added.Pakistan will play their first match in Kolkata on March 16 against a qualifier team before their much-anticipated clash against arch-rivals India at the same venue three days later.
