Shahid Afridi the captain of Pakistan cricket team played cricket for 20 years for Pakistan. He has been very magnificent throughout his career with the ball. He always considered himself as a bowling all rounder. His first wicket was against Srilanka in which he got the wicket of Rana Tunga who was very tough to get out.
Shahid made his debut with a bang when smashed the thirty seven ball century in Kenya against SriLanka. The team of Srilanka never expected such innings from a youngster who was just entered the arena. He did not have any fear of failure. He was included in the side for his bowling skills but the captain of the team saw him hitting long sixes in the nets so he was sent as an opener.
Bowlers of Srilanka were not inexperienced rather they had all the experienced players in their lineup. Pakistani youngster never changed his bowling or batting style throughout his career. His career has been full of joy since he had become the star of the nation after the world record. Team of Srilanka did not have any clue how to stop that man from hitting those huge sixes out of the ground.
Shahid Afridi did not score century in the second match of his career but later on in the bowling he got the most important wicket of their main batsman Arjuna Ranatunga. His spin bowling was quite sharp more than a normal leg spinner of any class. The youngster got the fame from his first century of the career against Srilanka in Kenya.
Shahid Afridi career stayed for almost twenty years and he has been very fit throughout his career. At the start of his career he was brought in the side for his leg spin bowling but later on he was known to the cricketing world for his hard hitting batsman. His career was very tremendous.
