Karachi: Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi Wednesday said that losing to Australia in the World Twenty20 semi-finals was the biggest disappointment of his career.
Afridi said beating Australia was his aim after they suffered a whitewash in their Down Under tour earlier this year, losing both the ODI and Test series besides a T20 International.
The Pakistan team returned home Wednesday, five days after their defeat against Australia. But Afridi is still in agony.

"I am still dejected. Had we lost in the final, the pain would not have been that severe like I feel now," he told reporters at the Karachi airport.
Afridi indicated he went to the Caribbean with two aims - to defend the World T20 title and to beat Australia to end their winning streak.
