None of Waqar Younis or Wasim Akram. “This Star Is My Hero,” Says Shaheen Afridi


In One-Day Internationals, Shaheen Afridi became the fastest pacer to reach 100 wickets on Tuesday.

Shaheen Afridi, a pacer for Pakistan, became the first player to reach 100 wickets in One-Day Internationals on Tuesday. Shaheen accomplished the feat at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata during Pakistan’s World Cup cricket match versus Bangladesh. Tanzid Hasan of Bangladesh was removed by Shaheen, moving him up the rankings above Mitchell Starc of Australia. Shaheen surpassed Starc, who accomplished the same accomplishment in 52 games, by accomplishing it in 51 games. Following the game, Shaheen said he wanted to play courageous cricket like his father-in-law and attributed his success to former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi.

“We’re thrilled to have broken records for Pakistan; after all, records are meant to be broken. My hero, Shahid Afridi, always provides us advice. Shaheen, who is married to the daughter of the former Pakistan captain, was cited by sports news sources as saying, “My goal is to play cricket like him.”

The Pakistani team’s spirit has increased following their victory over Bangladesh, and Shaheen is optimistic that they may still make it to the semi-finals.

The 23-year-old did, however, accept the team’s shortcomings, which led to their consecutive four-game losing streak.
