Kolkata, March 26 (IANS) Pakistan’s legendary cricketer Imran Khan said Saturday the experience of leading the side in Tests will give India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni an edge over his Pakistani counterpart Shahid Afridi in the World Cup semi-final to be held in Mohali March 30.
“Dhoni has an advantage because he is captaining in Tests, ODIs and Twenty20. On the other hand, Afridi plays doesn’t captain in Tests. I must say one thing that Test cricket is the real cricket,” said Imran during a promotional event here.
“A Test match teaches a cricketer to play under real pressure. Test match is a test. Test match is about temperament, technique and talent. He (Afridi) did a mistake by giving away the test captaincy,” said Pakistan’s only World Cup winning captain when asked to compare between the two captains.
Khan also said that if Afridi gets back to his batting form then it can make a difference between winning and losing.
“If Afridi has his day and sticks to the crease for 10 overs then it can make a big difference between winning and losing,” said Khan.
