Regret - Why did Afridi took back his retirement?

Nation regrets Pakistan's All-Rounder Shahid Khan Afridi's decision to take back his retirement from International Cricket for a third time.

After Shahid Afridi's worst performance in World T20 Semi-Final against Sri Lanka, the Nation is seriously regretting that why did Afridi took back his retirement from International Cricket for a third time, which he announced to protest the working of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Now Afridi has come under severe criticism following his dismal performance in the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka with some former players calling on the veteran All-Rounder to retire from International Cricket with immediate effect.

Once the darling of crowds and one of the most commercially viable figures in Pakistan, Afridi has turned from into a villain from hero following his disappointing show in the World Twenty20 where he manage just 30 runs with the bat and scalped four wickets.

In the past Afridi had announced his retirement on a number of occasions. First, in 2006, he decided to take a temporary sabbatical from Test Cricket to concentrate on ODIs. Then in 2010, he announced his Test retirement after Pakistan lost the first Test against Australia at Lord's. A year later he announced a "Conditional" retirement from international cricket to protest against the way he was "Humiliated" by the PCB, who had stripped him of his ODI captaincy.
