    Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has expressed his desire to take up coaching in future.

    While speaking to Gulf News, the veteran all-rounder was confident that he can help the youngsters in improving the mental aspect of their game.

    “I would be interested in coaching young boys under 18 and 19. It is that age they need coaching,” said Afridi. “If I tell my story to a young aspiring cricketer on how I braved the pressure situations in tough games, it will not only motivate them but also they will be learning a lot of new things that will help them become a good cricketer.”

    However, the 41-year-old ruled out the possibility of coaching the Men in Green in future.

    “I don’t have the temperament to coach the national team,” he said. “Moreover, I am fit as ever so my focus is on playing cricket right now and try and give my best for the team.”

    Afridi believes Pakistan’s recently appointed head coach-cum-chief selector Misbahul Haq will need time to bring changes in the national cricket setup.

    “Misbah has a huge responsibility now and he has to deliver,” he said. “He would need at least three years to get the team in order.”

    What will he teach? How to bite a cricket ball? Or how to moonwalk on the pitch?
