Although the national selectors have announced a 15-member squad for the Asia Cup and World T20 but Afridi said the selectors and team management will closely watch performances in Asia Cup to be held in Bangladesh from February 24.

"I hope that we don’t need to make changes in the squad and it plays in both events but if any player(s) fails to click in the Asia Cup then there can be changes made in the side for World Cup," Afridi said.

The International Cricket Council has set March 8 as a deadline for those teams who have qualified for the super round to make last minute changes in their selected squads.

"If they are players who impress everyone in the Pakistan Super League they can be considered for the World T20,” said the skipper. Afridi also minced no words in stating that he was disappointed with performances of some players in recent times under his captaincy.
“Myself, the team management and selectors gave full confidence and support to every player but unfortunately what we are looking at the same response was not forthcoming from players," he stated.
Pakistani selectors have picked five players in their Asia Cup and World T20 squad who have yet to play T20 Internationals. The selectors have also axed experienced opener Ahmed Shehzad, Muhammad Rizwan, Sohaib Maqsood and Umar Gul for the two events.
Afridi said he can say for sure that in his captaincy every player who was in the team got full chances to show his performances.
