Cricket lovers cannot forget the exploits of Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi. He is extremely popular for his blistering batting and he stunned all when as a teenager scored the fastest century in ODI in just over 30 balls.
Even Indians loved Afridi’s attacking batting despite the rivalry between India and Pakistan. Recently Afridi retired biding final farewell to cricket. Even earlier Afridi many times retired only to make his return in a sensational manner.
Afridi finally retired from international cricket in February after playing over 27 tests and 300 ODIs. Now BCCi surprised Afridi by sending Team India captain Virat Kohli’s jersey signed by the entire team.
The shirt also carried out a personal message to Afridi from Kohli. He said “To Shahid Bhai, best wishes, always a pleasure playing against you.” Shirt also included the signatures of Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra, Jasprit Bumrah, Suresh Raina, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, Hardik Pandya.
