Shahid Afridi's cricketing career

Having made his international debut in 1996, Shahid Afridi has been one of Pakistan's match-winners for more than two decades of his illustrious cricketing career. The veteran of 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 99 T20Is officially announced his retirement from the game in February 2017. 'Lala' had announced his retirement from Test Cricket back in 2010. Nonetheless, he made his return to the game's longest format after a four-year hiatus to lead Pakistan. However, his comeback was short-lived as he only managed to make a solitary Test match appearance. 

 The former all-rounder was a part of the victorious Pakistan squad that lifted its first and only ICC World T20 trophy. He also led the 'Men In Green' to the semifinals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.
