Shahid Afridi pulls out of Pakistan's West Indies tour

Pakistan's World Cup captain, Shahid Afridi, has withdrawn from the country's tour to the West Indies.
A Pakistan Cricket Board source said the 31-year-old all-rounder had made himself unavailable for the tour, which starts on 18 April. "He will not be going to West Indies as apparently he wants to take a break from the game," said the source before adding that the player had spoken to the chairman of the PCB and explained he was not in the right frame of mind to go to the Caribbean.
Afridi quit Test cricket last year but had been expected to play in the one-day and Twenty20 matches against West Indies.
Pakistan were knocked out of the World Cup when they lost by 29 runs to India in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
The flamboyant Afridi has appeared in 320 one-dayers, 27 Tests and 42 Twenty20 internationals for his country. Pakistan will play one Twenty20, five one-dayers and two Tests in the West Indies.
