Shahid Afridi is a flashy all rounder introduced to the international cricket when he was just 16 year old as a legspinner. He scored the fastest one-day hundred in his maiden innings. He blossomed into one of modern-day cricket's most dangerous players and a vital cog in Pakistan's revival in 2005. He scored a wonderful century against India in Kanpur in April 2005. A few weeks before, by smashing the joint second fastest Test half-century at Bangalore and taking crucial last day wickets, Afridi had helped Pakistan memorably level the Test series. He is at his best when forcing straight and at his weakest pushing at the ball just outside off. The biggest improvement in his performance has been his legspin. His all round skills are completed by alert fielding and among the strongest arms in the game.
