Reviewing the cricketing history of Pakistan, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi remains to be one of the most celebrated figures of the country. While the explosive all-rounder largely remained consistent, but he was uncontrollable on his day. This trait of him allowed him to witness a continuous swell in his fan-base.
Despite passing of 22 years, the fans sit crazy to see a sight of Afridi. Be it a gigantic six or a traditional salute after a moment of triumph, the 39-year old thrills his fans like no other player. In the recently played encounter of Multan Sultans against Islamabad United, the iconic Gaddafi Stadium saw Afridi’s fans turning out to back their superstar.
Seeing all the love lifted the heart of the darling cricketer of Pakistan as he moved to share his feelings on his official Twitter handle. Afridi extended his gratitude to all the well-wishers for supporting him through thick and thin. He added that his fans are his strength and they motivate him to do well. Moreover, he requested them to support the Pakistan Super League (PSL) by turning out in large numbers.
