Daily Echo: Hants confirm that Afridi will not return this year Hants confirm that Afridi will not return this year

Hampshire manager Giles White has confirmed that Shahid Afridi will not be returning for any of this season's Friends Life t20 competition.

The Pakistan star is continuing to have trouble acquiring a new visa.

But White says he could yet play for the county again.

White said: "Although Shahid will not be returning to The Ageas Bowl this time around, the door is still open for him to return to Hampshire in future years should circumstances suit both parties.

"He obviously had a huge impact for us last year and has been missed. However, we are now deep into the 2012 competition and the side is settled so we don’t feel it is right to change that now.”

We seem to have done rather well without him. We shouldn't be bringing in foreign mercenaries just for this competition anyway.
