ď[There is] good cricket and good pitches and I think this is a good preparation for me before playing in the one-dayers against Australia. Definitely if I perform well I will go with good morale so itís very important for me."
"I always enjoy cricket, especially in Australia and India, and I think you can learn a lot of things here when you play with good cricketers on a good track."
"If you perform here it matters a lot, so Iím always keen to perform."
Afridi played his first game for the Warriors on Tuesday night and although he failed with the bat he took four wickets despite ending on the losing side against the West End Redbacks.
