Afridi’s century leaves Shoaib Akhtar in awe


Afridi’s century leaves Shoaib Akhtar in aweShahid Afridi has been a super star since he made his mark into international cricket. He made the fastest century on his second ODI match against Sri Lanka and ruled the book for 17 years.

Afridi, who called it a day from international cricket in February 2017, on Tuesday turned back the clock and entertained his fans in his old style.

He made a marvelous 101 in only 43 balls for Hampshire victory against Derbyshire in NatWest T20 Blast quarter-finals.

Lauding the 37-year-old Afridi’s power-packed batting show, former Pakistan speed star Akhtar took to Twitter and wrote: “Congrats @SAfridiOfficial on maiden #T20 century. Well played my brother. You deserve #ShabiKiJhappi 🙂 #NatwestT20Blast #BoomBoomAfridi”.

Afridi hit 10 fours and 7 sixes to pull Hampshire to 249 which is their highest T20 score.

The Pakistani all-rounder was put up the order to open the innings and he did what he does best. ‘BoomBoom’ Afridi reached the fifty landmark in only 20 balls.
