Shoaib Akhtar is one of the most feared bowlers during his playing days. He was known for his raw pace and the ability to rattle the batsman with sheer pace. Shoaib Akhtar retired from the game after the end of the 2011 cricket world cup. He is known for being an aspiring administrator in Pakistan Cricket Board but off late he’s been restricted to doing only analysis and giving his opinions in YouTube.
During the latest episode of his YouTube channel appearance, Shoaib Akhtar was seen interacting with kids and asking them about what their aspirations are in their lives. When one of the kids said that he wants to be like Shahid Afridi, the intimidating fast bowler responded back in a cheeky manner.
He said –“ Afridi? Jaldi out hoga tu bhi (Afridi, you will get out early too?).”
The veteran cricketer in Shahid Afridi was a genuine all rounder in all 3 formats of the game. During his initial days Afridi started out his career as an opener in test matches and then settled into a middle order role. He ended his career as an all rounder in ODIs and T20s. But more than his achievements of scoring over 10,000 international runs and taking 500 international wickets, he is known for his exploits in getting out cheaply with the bat. Also the former captain of Pakistan is popularly known for duck outs in international cricket.
