Karachi, Apr 1: Emotionally drained after Pakistan's World Cup semifinal loss to India, ODI skipper Shahid Afridi has decided to pull out of the tour to the West Indies starting April 21.


"Afridi has told the Pakistan Cricket Board that he should not be considered for the coming tour as he wants to rest for a while from competitive cricket," a source in the board said late night.

He said that Afridi's decision stemmed from the disappointment of having lost the World Cup semifinal to India when expectations were high from the team.

"He has said that right now he is not in the state of mind to go on tour after the gruelling World Cup campaign and wants a break from the game," the source said.PTI
