Shahid Afridi wants to remain fit for 2015 World Cup

Islamabad: Enigmatic allrounder Shahid Afridi wants his future Pakistan selections based on performance and to stay fit so he can keep playing cricket until the 2015 World Cup.

The prospects for Afridi, who captained Pakistan to the 2011 World Cup semifinals, are in doubt after he failed to get a wicket and scored only 126 runs in the five-match ODI series against South Africa.

He's under public pressure to be dropped from the squad for the Champions Trophy in England and Wales in June.

Afridi says he will "not play by force and neither would I like the selectors to select me without good performances."

Chief selector Iqbal Qasim said before the ODI series against South Africa that it will be the allrounder's last chance to perform in international cricket.

Afridi says "the World Cup is in my mind but it depends on fitness and performance."
