Shahid Afridi

India Cricket Live A flamboyant allrounder who was brought into international cricket as a 16-year-old legspinner and surprised everyone but himself by pinch-hitting the fastest one-day hundred in his maiden innings. Shahid Afridi is a compulsive shot-maker. This is exciting while it lasts but is too often his undoing. An Afridi virtuoso is laced with fearless lofted drives and short-arm jabs over midwicket. He is at his best when forcing straight and at his weakest pushing at the ball just outside off. Afridi's legspinners are underrated but he boasts a vicious faster ball, and his allround skills are completed by agile fielding. His batting version of Russian Roulette too easily allows Pakistan's selectors to drop him when he is talented enough to be moulded into a world-class allrounder. He also possesses the firmest handshake in international cricket.
