Shahid Afridi has a very good Test record but still he is not in the team?
he has retired. but the other reason why i feel that he would still not be in the team for test cricket is because his attitude against the opposition, if you have seen his matches, you will see at least 2 or 3 times he would be either saying something bad to the opposition side or he would be over confident.
As a player
1)))He was a star when Pakistan won the T20 wc.
He was player of the Tournament in T20 wc 2008
3))He made world record scoring fastest century
4))He is a most famouse cricketer
((-))((--))As a personr))(((--))
(((--)) As a leader((((---))))
He has captained Pakistan in Four T20(according to my knowledge)And he has won all of them.

I know for sure You will answer this Q and that's why i searched Google for facts and now you can sleep with open eyes becoz these are facts.
Shahid Afridi Turns 30 Today -- How Long Would He Play INTL Cricket?
A hearty wishes from me to Shahid Afridi for his 30th birthday.His 36 ball 100 was one of the special knock I will never forget.
ParArabRocker,I know you like him and play in his style which you mentioned once.So Iam saying this to him for you and all other fans.
1)"Please stay from all kinds of controversies and don't do anything disgraceful for your nation".
2)"You have to forget whatever happened in the past and all the batting woes he had and from now on should look to win matches for Pakistan with your batting and bowling"
3)"You have to be more consistent with your batting and play with responsibility as a senior player"
I think he may play till 34 years of age.It's depends upon him and his form too.
Do you know that Shahid Afridi also saw Tendulkar's legs shaking with fear,whilst facing S.Akhtar, where was-?
Its a load of rubbish designed to sell copies of his book. If Ahktar makes a fair bit from this book then he should pay Tendulkar royalties, otherwise no one would care about his book.
Does anyone really think that Tendulkar would be shaking with fear when as a 16 year old Tendulkar took on Younis and managed to make 50 odd with a blood nose from a short sharp delivery?
Is Shahid Afridi the best all rounder at present in World Cricket?
Yea Afridi is one of the best All rounders in the game at the moment , his bowling is deadly , he is one of the best fielders , and there ain't a bowler in world cricket who isn't afraid of Afridi.
We all know that Afridi made 100 runs in 32 balls but that is not important since he is not going to do that in every match.The reason that people think of him as a good player is only because he can hit big shots in small grounds.By looking at any statistics, Afridi's statistics are no where near to Sehwag.
Even though Sehwag cant hit big sixes like Afiridi, he makes consistence runs in all formats of cricket.
So if you think that hitting big shots makes player better, then go ahead and pick Afiridi.
But remember," no matter how far is the ball gonna go, its still '6' runs".
Twenty20:BoomBoom Afridi :78 matches 3 (50s) 18.68 Avg. (Even worse than MS Dhoni)
Twenty20:Virender Sehwag :66 matches 11 (50s) 26.37Avg.
That's typical Afridi for you. Always trying to attract attention. He is worried that he was not getting attention due to the spot-fixing scandal, so he is trying get himself back into the spotlight. Any publicity is good publicity.
Do you think that when Shahid Afridi arrives at the crease the popposition skipper gets nervous?
When he get to crease paki captain get nervous and start thinking about the following players and the next player standing just behind the boundary line for his turn.. he s the worst player of cricket ever produce
What Kind Of Player of You Think Shahid Afridi Would Have Been If He Was Consistent?
Well of course he would be in the Viv Richards and Adam Gilchrist...actually probably not! He would be in the Andrew Symonds and Lance Klusener mould.
I'm not sure even if Afridi was consistent that he would be compared to Richards and Gilchrist. The reason I even used those 2 players, is because they were consistently smashing bowlers around their whole career, Afridi tries to do the same, but he doesn't have the same class or shot selection as Gilchrist and Richards.
So he would be like Symonds and Klusener, he would probably bat 6, and finish the innings off with a bang. This would suit Afridi best because he doesn't have the compact technique to open an innings but he does have the skill and timing to hit a big ball. He would probably be regarded as a great finisher who can hit a big ball, like Andrew Symonds.
1st of all he is not part of test team. and most consistent inconsistent player who played 14 year of cricket and still he have no idea about anything..
hes the most worst player of cricket ever produce..
Dedicate to afridi
"every performance of afridi consider as FLUKE ! cause hes the worst player of cricket ever produce"
What would happen to Pakistan if Shahid Afridi was captain?
so its mean that pak will play with 10 men :D .. and hes just concentrate on his hair style more in the field.. so u can imagine the result
and hes the most worst player cricket ever produce.... sorry hasaan
Hehehhe, Few of the guys above have taken it personal and offensive calling Afridi a "chucker", guys give me a break, what difference would it make if he's a chucker or not, cause the guys a certified cheat for ball tampering.............
Finally ball tampering or chucking, the guys a cheat, So eazy guys, no need to explode.............lol
Who do you consider the better all rounder in the ODIs: Shahid Afridi or Sanath Jayasuriya?
Jayasurya: More Reliable and Consistent.
Reason is Afridi cant bat as per situation demands but Jayasurya could.
Nalayak is funny here. Isn't?
"there are 44 International centuries"
And the man cant see 99 centuries. Whoa Whoa Whoa.
how he won the world cup? by the way his innings helped pakistan to win the cup (finest flukes of his career) but what about razzaq, his inclusion changed the fate of Pakistan team, his opening bowling spells made the difference.
my answer is ..............................
hahahhahah knighted? yah for his consistent inconsistent performance but i think that PCB should awarded that recognition to keep afridi in the team with below below average performances.
Is shahid afridi the only person who can save pakistan cricket?
No its a step backwards, person who gave up captaincy after one match doesn't have guts but unfortunately problem with Pakistan cricket is-- captain becomes sacrificial goat the moment he is appointed, so hard to assume this role & nobody would be ready to captain lest he becomes the next fall guy.
Since bookie has given Afridi the clean chit, PCB must have thought of him as good guy & recent captain too so he got the chance again & honestly wish both team Pakistan & captain Shahid all the best to take his team out of this trying period, despite not being the best man to do the job !!
Are you glad as a cricket fan that the Shahid Afridi case is resolved?:D?
Yeah i am a great fan of Afridi and his boom boom big hitting. it is a great entertainment. I always knew that his retirement will be temporary. Similar to Abdul Razzaq who also retired couple of years ago but came back again. I am really sick and tired of this issues between Pakistani Players and PCB. So it's good to see at least one issue has been solved here.
Hope that Pakistan can be the formidable side they used to be honey.
On what basis Shahid Afridi is supected to have taken drugs ? what are the result of the dope test ?
Lol! answered tht one b4. Umm... no one is quite sure on what "exact" basis.But most probably because of his good performance. or maybe because he is a Paki player.They always suspect Paki's :S or maybe just a random one. But anyhow the result is nothing anyone should worry about bcuz there is no "BREAKING NEWS" yet saying he was on drugs.. :)
is Shahid Afridi the most unpredictable Cricketer among the Cricket fans all over the world?
I am personally not a big fan of Afridi, but yes I believe he could have achived much more with potential he has. Thus he is biggest under-achiever IMO. Playing your first innings, and making a century on 37 balls, he surely has something,
" Mercurial, dangerous and stylish "
No one knows his true age or birthplace or anything.. everything in papers(legal certificates) of afridi are false... coz at the age when he claims he is just 19, he looks like 25 year young man.... dont trust any official info abt afridi... only God knows the truth
