That could happen if an approach by New South Wales is materialized.
Afridi has been approached by NSW to play for their T20 team, and possibly their Sheffield Shield team as well, next season.
After Younis Khan (South Australia), Umar Gul (Western Australia), and Sohail Tanvir (South Australia), Afridi will become the 4th Pakistani player in 2 years to represent an Australian domestic side if the deal goes through.
That is good news for the allrounder, who is probably still on a high after leading Pakistan to the World T20 title.
A higher valued IPL contract?
The Deccan Chargers would be kicking their behinds for canceling his contract earlier this year. If he was still on their roster, he could have represented them at the Champions League.
Irrespective, the Chargers won, Afridi won, Pakistan won, so alls well that ends well!
