Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer is unhappy with Shahid Afridi's decision to stay away from Test cricket till the 2007 World Cup.

Woolmer has expressed his unhappiness to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over the flamboyant all-rounder's decision, a report in The News said.

"Woolmer has conveyed that he is not happy with Afridi's decision and will speak to him when he reaches Abu Dhabi to join the Pakistan team for the two one-dayers against India," the newspaper said quoting a source.

"He firmly believes that Afridi is one of the few players capable of adjusting and doing well in both forms of the game," it said.

The former England player is currently supervising a coaching clinic for youngsters in Dubai.

Afridi had said recently that he would not play Test cricket till the World Cup to concentrate on ODIs.

Afridi said he had taken this decision as he was not able to adjust between both forms of the game and his performances were suffering in the one-dayers.
