KARACHI: Pakistan's legendary sensation Shahid Afridi Monday expressed concerns about new talents induction in the Pakistan national cricket team, saying "youngsters getting a chance to play for the national side too quickly."

Former skipper said that he didn't see any talent in batting but there were some fantastic bowlers, adding: "We are giving them a chance for the Pakistan team too quickly. Take some time, keep an eye on them. Make them play some tours of the A team, take them to the academies. Don’t make things easy, let them work hard to wear Pakistan’s cap."

The all-rounder said "playing in hometown has always been ecstatic.

Talking about his injury, the all-rounder said  “I need to work out my knee. BPL was great but the pain increased during the PSL because of which I think I struggled. I have time to cover in the future,”  he added.
