Profile

Shahid Afridi is one of the greatest entertainers in world cricket. ‘Boom Boom Afridi’, as he is widely known, follows a simple theory of either to hit hard or get out, which makes him a crowd favourite. He started his career with a bang at the young age of 16, as he smashed the fastest ODI hundred in his maiden innings off just 37 deliveries.

Afridi is at his best when playing straight and at his weakest while pushing at the ball just outside the off stump. He is capable of hitting almost any ball out of the park and is dangerous when in full flow.

His carefree attitude has cost him a regular place in the side over the years. The all-rounder is also an excellent leg-spinner. Afridi was adjudged the Player of the Tournament at the World Twenty20 in 2007. He had another memorable edition in England. The all-rounder was awarded the man of the match in both, semi-final and final match of the 2009 event.

He was later made the captain of the T20 side as regular skipper Younus Khan decided to retire from the shortest format of the game after guiding Pakistan to victory.
