Shahid Afridi is all set to make a return to international cricket. While he may have represented Pakistan for the last time, he’s all set to return to the international scene for World XI. Picked alongside his teammate Shoaib Malik, they will be playing a T20 international against West Indies on the 31st of May.
He would be coming back to Lord’s. The venue where he scored an unbeaten fifty in the finals to guide Pakistan to the WT20 title in 2009. Thus, when Afridi steps into Lord’s again one final time, he would reminisce a lot of memories. He will play for the noble cause to raise funds.
Recently he appeared in a rapid-fire where he was asked various questions about cricketers and teammates. He went on to call Virat Kohli as his favourite Indian cricketer. Kohli is a tough competitor on the field and doesn’t give the opposition an inch playing fierce and aggressive cricket but at the same time is a very likeable character and shares a great off-field bond with a lot of cricketers.
Both Kohli and Afridi have known to be good friends over the years. In fact, when Afridi retired, the Indian team also presented him with a signed jersey which he acknowledged. He was asked various other questions regarding his teammates. There were various other comparisons too where Afridi was asked to pick one of them.
Further, when asked about the coolest captain in world cricket, he named former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. From the World T20 title in 2007, No.1 Test ranking to the World Cup 2011 championship and the Champions Trophy 2013 Team India won everything under Dhoni. One key attribute of his captaincy is his calm and composed approach.
Here is the Q&A with Afridi
