Karachi: Dashing all-rounder Afridi said Wednesday he will skip most of the well-paid Bangladesh league in sort to play Pakistan's imperfect over’s series against England.

Duty has always remained the top precedence because Pakistan has given me a lot," Afridi told reporters.Afridi is known for his world record fastest one-day hundred, which he ended off 37 balls against Sri Lanka in Nairobi 1997. "I want to play for Pakistan because my team needs me and we want to keep the winning series intact," he said. Pakistan remains victorious in one-day series since losing 3-2 to South Africa in November 2010.
Afridi retired in anger at being deserted as one-day captain last May, but came out of retreat in October. "I have not as yet made up my mind when to call it quits. But definitely one thing I have decided is that I want to retire when I am the theater well so that people keep in mind me positively," he said.
I think I still have a lot to suggest to Pakistan cricket. I will leave when I feel I am at the peak of the career and have also contribute to Pakistan cricket as new legends of Pakistan cricket have done. I want to be remembering like Imran Khan, Javed Miandad and Wasim Akram are remembered today. And my aim remains to reach a steady scale of performance as these legends did in their careers."
Pakistan will publicize the restricted overs squad for the England series next month.
