Boom Boom Afridi showed his power show in the current season of county cricket with his bat and ball as well. He earned the Man of the Match due to his all-round performance while playing from Hampshire cricket team. He played his second T20 match of the season and amused the fans through his brilliant performance in the shortest format of cricket.
The fans back at home wanted Boom Boom Afridi to perform well in county cricket season 2016 so that he could make his comeback in the team. The selectors informed him to prove his fitness and performance in county season otherwise they won’t consider him for national team in future tours. So he showed how eager he was to perform in the county cricket.
It was a very difficult time for Boom Boom Afridi in last few months after losing two major tournaments. Afridi did not played in the Pakistani domestic cricket as well after losing shamefully in the Asia Cup and the T20 world Cup. Especially the two matches against India were lost by the Pakistani team unexpectedly. Pakistani cricket fans are waiting for a world cup win against Indian team since very long time.
It was expected this year that Pakistan team will beat India in world cup under captainship of Boom Boom Afridi. However, the team was influenced badly because of grouping in senior and junior players. Many seniors had planned not to perform well in important matches to fail Afridi. Afridi himself and some players played very devotedly. In the end evils of players with bad thinking become a irrecoverable loss for the Pakistan team.
As soon Pakistan team arrived back home, investigations were started against many players. Afridi himself has resigned from captainship and stayed away from cricket for a while. Taking some rest with family and spending time in religious matters, he is back once again in county cricket in his usual Boom Boom Afridi style.
