Biography

Sahibzada Mohammad Shahid Khan Afridi, chiefly mentioned as Shahid Afridi, also mentioned within the media as Boom Boom & Lala could also be a Pakistani international cricketer and thus the previous captain of the Pakistan national cricket team.


Shahid Afridi, Pakistan’s all-rounder, is as enigmatic a player as there ever was. He came as a 16-year-old into the Pakistan ODI squad and was unfazed by all the speculation regarding his real age. in only his second ODI against Sri Lanka in 1996, he blasted his because of a 37-ball century. For quite 17 years, it remained the fastest century within the ODI format before Corey Anderson broke the record in January 2014. Afridi’s sparkling ton came after he was sent in as a pinch-hitter at one drop and after being picked within the team as a leg-spinner to exchange the injured Mushtaq Ahmed.

Debut

He made his Test debut in 1998, taking a five-for in Karachi against Australia. As his career progressed, priorities again reshuffled, and with the retirement of the spin duo, Saqlain Mushtaq and Mushtaq Ahmed by 2004, Afridi and Danish Kaneria became the first-choice spinners. While a limited-overs regular, he remained in and out of Test reckoning. In 2006, he announced his Test retirement opting to specialize in ODIs but came out of it within months. As T20 ushered a limited-overs revolution, Afridi soon became the format’s best player internationally, with an appearance within the ultimate of the inaugural edition in 2007 and a win within the next edition, in 2009, as captain, when he scored an unbeaten 54 to need Pakistan to the title. In 2010, he was appointed as captain of Pakistan altogether three formats. He successfully led Pakistan to a World Twenty20 semi-final berth. After facing defeat in his first Test as captain, against Australia, Afridi soon proclaimed his re-retirement from Tests.
