id Afridi, the former Pakistan captain, has said he has put the controversy that led to his temporary retirement behind him and is now focused solely on playing for his country. Afridi had announced his 'conditional' retirement from international cricket in May, after being stripped of the ODI captaincy, saying he would return only if there were changes in the PCB and the team management. "Whatever has happened, it is time to play cricket," Afridi told Dubai Sports City. "I don't want to talk about this anymore. It is all over and I am here to play cricket now." Afridi came out of retirement after Zaka Ashraf, a former banker, replaced Ijaz Butt as the PCB chairman. Ashraf met with Afridi a few days after taking over and the allrounder was subsequently included in the one-day squad for the five-match series against Sri Lanka in the UAE.
