Shahid Afridi’s autobiography is the big news nowadays in the cricket world. In his autobiography “Game changer” he has done a lot of revelations about many issues. There are many intriguing things related to the cricket world in his book. He also told an interesting story about his first century that he had made his first century with the bat of The Lord of cricket, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Former Pakistani batsman Shahid Afridi had his first century against Sri Lanka in 1996.
This century was only made in 37 balls and the world record of making the fastest ODI century was scored. After this dictating century, there was a rift in international cricket. Because there was no imagination of such a fast century in that period. In that period the style of cricket was not so aggressive. That is why this century is given special importance in the history of cricket. Afridi recalled that special century in his autobiography game changer, how did Sachin’s bat reach me?
Afridi wrote in his book that this bat was given to Waqar Younus. Yunus wanted to make a similar bat in Sialkot. But Waqar gave that bat to me before taking Sialkot and I batted with this bat and made his first century. On the basis of official documents, he made this century at the age of 16. Dismissing this fact in his autobiography, Afridi said, at that time he was 21 years of age, not 16 years old. In official documents, their age is not correct. In his autobiography, he wrote that he was born in 1975. However, in this World Cup, you will not be able to see Afridi’s game. But the Pakistan team has said that they will present a tough challenge to the World Cup and their team is fully prepared to deal with any challenge.
