Shahid Afridi hits a super performance
In international cricket, Shahid Afridi is always a crowd favourite. He is an explosive batsman who seems to lack patience in batting but on his day the crowd can never have enough of his monster hitting.
Indeed, his has an approach to batting that can change the outcome of the game as happened in 2nd ODI no. 2513, Pakistan versus South Africa played at Kingsmead, Durban, on 7 February 2007 in which Afridi raced to 77 off 35 balls.
So if anyone has written off Afridi during his lean spell, his performance here proves them wrong. Afridi is a talented player
and his fans and those who admire his ability will certainly hope that he has the kind of discipline which can keep him shining for many more years.
It is a tremendous joy to watch a player like him when he is in form.
