This comes after Afridi excelled during the recent tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

In the series against the Proteas, Afridi took six wickets in the three ODIs at an average of 32.33.

As for the T20 series, he claimed three wickets in four matches at an average of 44.33 and an economy rate of 8.86.
