“There are many talented players in the dressing room. It’s my honour that I am leading them even at this age. If I keep playing like this and if the boys keep learning, it’s great.

“I think it’s also great for this league that so many big names have come here and played a part in making this T10 a big success. The youngsters who want to play for their countries in future are getting a great chance to learn from these legends,” he added.

Afridi then said the T10 format has Olympic potential.
