It's going to be tough for Afridi: Raja

Karachi: Shahid Afridi may have realised a long-cherished dream to captain Pakistan in all formats of cricket but he would have a tough time dealing with the pressure that the job brings with it, feels former skipper Rameez Raja.

Raja, who also served as chief executive of the Pakistan Cricket Board, said Afridi needs to be given complete backing.

"I back the PCB decision to appoint him captain for all three formats of the sport despite Afridi's reluctance to play Test cricket," Raja said.

"Afridi being captain for all three forms of the game will bring consistency and stability to the captaincy," he added.

Raja feels the Asia Cup and the Test tour to England would be defining events for Afridi, whose captaincy and performance as a player will come under intense scrutiny in the coming months.
