Talking to the reporters during the camp in Lahore on Friday, Afridi said that he might promote himself to open the innings in the T20 matches against New Zealand.
Pakistan are due to play three Twenty20 Internationals, two Test matches, and six One Day Internationals to get prepared for the all-important ICC World Cup 2011 which starts from January 19, 2011 in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
In a bid to regain his depleting touch, Afridi is pondering upon opening for Pakistan but his decision can also backfire under tough conditions in New Zealand where ball is expected to swing appreciably.

Booom Boon Afridi expressed his desire to end his career on a high. He said that his biggest desire was to win world cup for Pakistan before leaving the game.
“As captain I would love to end my career after leading our team to the World Cup title,” he added.
