Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has brutally trolled his former teammate Shahid Afridi. Shahid Afridi is one of Pakistan’s most decorated allrounders, having scored more than 10,000 runs and taken nearly 500 wickets in international cricket.
But it would not be very wrong to say that Shahid Afridi was more popular among the fans because of his irresponsible batting and getting out on ducks. No matter what the situation was, the former international knew just one way of batting and that was to attack. And on most of the occasions, the attacking mindset did not really yield the desired result.
Last year, he completed a century of ducks during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) match between Dhaka Platoon and Rajshahi Royals. In international cricket, Shahid Afridi scored 44 ducks with 30 of those ducks coming in ODIs. In the ODI format, only Sanath Jayasuriya has more ducks than him with 34 beside his name.
In his career, he has fallen for a duck six times in Tests. In T20s, that number stands at eight. The rest of the 56 zeroes came in domestic first-class, List A and T20 cricket. And while fans never shy away from taking shots at Shahid Afridi’s batting, his former teammate Shoaib Akhtar could not help either as he hilariously trolled the allrounder.
In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Shoaib Akhtar was asking some kids what they want to become when they grow up. One of the kids told him, he wants to be Shahid Afridi. In reply, Shoaib Akhtar hilariously told him: “Afridi? Jaldi out hoga tu bhi (Afridi, you will get out early too?).”
