Islamabad, May 25 : The Pakistan Cricket Board says Shahid Afridi has pulled out of this month's two-match limited-overs tour against Ireland due to an illness to his father.


PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar said Wednesday that Afridi has joined his ailing father in the United States, where he is undergoing liver treatment.

Pakistan is scheduled to play two ODIs against Ireland at the Northern Ireland capital Belfast on May 28 and 30.

The PCB dropped Afridi as ODI captain last week, apparently for criticizing team management following the one-day series against the West Indies.
