Former Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi has been a massive figure in world cricket. He started his career with an unflinching attitude on the cricket pitch and didn’t change his fearless approach until the end of his career. He was effective with both willow and leather and is currently the owner of the most number of sixes in One Day International Cricket.

He played his last international match for the World XI in their match against Windies at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London and also went on to pick up a wicket. He has been a recipient of a severe amount of brickbats over the course of his illustrious career, but that hasn’t perturbed him by any means. Rather, he has carried on in his own merry way.

Recently, the Khyber Agency-born cricketer played for the Paktia Panthers, captained by wicketkeeper Mohammad Shahzad, in the inaugural edition of the Afghanistan Premier League (APL). He is currently suffering from a knee injury and can later be seen in a number of domestic T20 events, which also includes the prestigious Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Afridi also has a foundation by the name of ‘Shahid Afridi Foundation’, which is aimed to improve the life of the underprivileged regarding healthcare and education. The organisation was founded in March 2014. Recently, N’Golo Kante, a French footballer, who plays as a defensive midfielder for Premier League Club Chelsea, gave an autographed shirt to the foundation.

Quite, expectantly Afridi was extremely delighted with the heartfelt gesture. He took to Twitter and wrote, “‘thank you’ @nglkante for your very kind contribution towards @SAFoundationN; your signed shirt will be received well by our donors in auction at our UK fundraisers this month. Thank You @mamadousakho for making it happen! Together we are #HopeNotOut @sportsdrzaf,”
