    Afridi is the most underrated cricketer of modern time. He is a bowling all rounder and it will be interesting to compare him statistically with bowling all rounders such as Wasim Akram, Chaminda Vass, Danniel Vettori, Abdul Razzak etc in terms of bowling average, strike rate, wickets per matche, batting average, man of the match awards secured etc in ODIs and T20s. Since he played more than 20 tests, a comparison in tests would also be interesting. In my view, he will come up as more consistent performer than many of his detractors think.

    afridi is only selected because of what he has done in the past. his pakistan career is now over

    Afridi is the most overrated player in Pakistan

  • kumarcoolbuddy on April 3, 2013, 13:32 GMT

    @ Nigah, probably Afridi is an alrounder good hitter (ofcourse with no batting technique at all) but comparing him with Bradman is beyond imagination.

    Absolutely hilarious.With regards to some one who questioned his brains about the ball chewing incident, with so many live cameras around, He was involved in the pitch tampering incident,when the viewers and tv crew(except for one camera) are busy with a blast outside the stadium. Exciting batsman but when it comes to these tantrums, he sure is irreplacable

    hahahahah Gud one Satish Love it :D

    Bradman start his career with zero and ends with zero as well but its records which declared him best batsman, don't forget to check Afridi's records as well which almost unbreakable.

    Haters gonna hate.but CRICKET IS NOT CRICKET WITHOUT SHAHID AFRIDI

    Even though he's inconsistent nowadays, it's a lot of fun to watch him play when he does. I think he could have still done well in test cricket and if he was active in the longer version, the question to replace him wouldn't even arise for another year or two.

  • Surajdon9 on April 1, 2013, 17:40 GMT

    No one can replace this man.Even Bradman can replace But nobady will replace Boom Boom.....

    no one can replace most consistent inconsistent player of history of the game :)

    Jokes always feel good if they are targeted across the border. But to be honest there is no denying the fact that he has entertained the whole world and his record speaks alot as well so lets not undermine him because he has most of in ODIs he has scored more then 7000+ runs, 340+ wkts, and 100+ catches and this is no mean achievement for any player and some of us may not agree but I have always been impressed with his honest statements in the media.

  • on April 1, 2013, 15:06 GMT

    Sadly Satich Missed to add Afridi's Disco on the pitch. Yes he is irreplaceable when you have that quality hehehe

  • Porky_PigTheToon on April 1, 2013, 10:48 GMT

    lol. Afridi is not only impatient but also immature guy. He sometimes have no idea what he does on the field, as well as off the field. The way talks to media and gives silly statements shows how immature he is. And the incident where chewed the ball is indeed funny. I mean what he was thinking that so many live cameras won't see him ?
