Default Adios international cricket. Shahid "Boom" Afridi announces retirement

http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakistan...y/1083401.html

Thoughts


Shahid Afridi has finally bowed to the inevitable and publicly bid adieu to international cricket, over 20 years after making his debut for Pakistan. Afridi said goodbye in fitting fashion as well, after a 28-ball 54 for Peshawar Zalmi that nearly pulled off a remarkable chase against Karachi Kings in the ongoing PSL.

Will be remembered for his fireworks and that 100 on debut. His uncanny and unorthdox style made him a talking point. Although calling him 36 is a big joke!

Afridi is one of those rare Pakistani cricketers who generally speaks positive about Bangladesh on talk shows. Appreciate him for that.

Afridi a true legend.

Greatest entertainer in the cricket history.

Greatest human being in cricket world (Greatest donor)

Most popular non Bangladeshi cricketer in Bangladesh by miles.

Love, Respect, Care to you from me on behalf of billions of Afridi fans.

We will MISS YOU BOSSS!!!! :Applaud:

He's Pakistani so he's superior according to that rajakar

And he's a cheat, pitch tampered twice that I've seen and ball tampered

I see, i din't came across that post thoug, but lately saw his few posts which seems he is very obsessed with pakistan. Sounds like he doesn't know which identity he is bearing.

Played for more than 2 decades mostly because of his good looks and stardom, has been absolutely mediocre through out his career

He is a legend. Might not have the best stats. But he is a name that everyone knows. The biggest entertainer. When I was a kid the first name that came to me when I heard about Pakistan team was afridi. Cricket world will surely miss you legend

That innings in Asia cup is haunting.

Bangladesh amassed 320-something.

For all his faults and issues, he was enjoyable and entertaining to watch.

Are there any players left from the 90s now?
