What I am happy about is that they have given Afridi a proper term as captain." <p></p> <p></p>"I am sure with his vast experience the two years that he has he will build a strong team for the World T20. He is a aggressive player and can get the players to push themselves," he added. <p></p> <p></p>Hafeez said if Pakistan cricket was to move forward it was important to have continuity and stability in the team and in key positions. <p></p> <p></p>"I believe that a captain and coach should be given proper time to do what they want to get the team to perform well and achieve the required results." <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan's head coach, Waqar Younis also told reporters today that Afridi's appointment was a positive sign. <p></p> <p></p>"It is a good thing because he is an experienced player and knows everything inside out and I would like to see him taking the team forward," Waqar said. .
