Shahid Afridi‘s return to form has landed him with a contract in the Caribbean Premier League.

Afridi confirmed that an offer was made to him to play in the CPL for the St. Lucia team with the tournament scheduled to begin on July 30.

“I am going through the contract and will see how it goes but I would love to play in such a big tournament because it is the first time they are having a professional T20 league with foreign participation in the West Indies,” he said.

Afridi finished the ODI series against West Indies with 10 wickets and he also scored a blistering 76 in the first match.

“These days I have decided to focus a lot on my batting as I realise now my fans and supporters expect a lot from me when I go out to bat,” he said.

“In the past few years because of team requirements I had focused a lot on improving my bowling but I am now paying a lot of attention to my batting and spending lot of time in the nets,” he said.
