    Afridi struggling to lift team's morale

    Shahid Afridi says it is proving hard to lift the morale of his squad following the allegations of fixing.

    Taunton: Pakistan one-day captain Shahid Afridi says it is proving hard to lift the morale of his squad following the allegations of fixing against three of the players.

    Afridi is captain for two Twenty20s and five one-day matches after taking over from Salman Butt — one of the three players returning to London to face an internal inquiry by Pakistani officials.

    Afridi says the remainder of Pakistan's tour of England will help the players get over the stress of the past few days but added that "it has been really difficult."

    Pakistan plays English county Somerset on Thursday before the first Twenty20 against England on Sunday.
