Shahid Afridi – One of the Best All-Rounders in ODI Cricket

bet365

Who would have though that 5-6 years ago lebelled as an average player with both bat and bowl will be known as one of the best Allrounders to have played the game. It looks like a optimistic or overboard statement but the facts and stats will describe the scenario where we can see and judge his records as the one of the best Limited over cricket player and what is to be noted we all know he could have and should have done better in his career. But taking into his current career record we can see he is one of the best out there.

Shahid Afridi – ODI Limited Overs Records

AfridiFull Name: Shahid Khan Afridi

Plays as an Allrounder
Right-Hand Batsman
Bowls Legbreak googlies

Jaysuria and Ramesh Kaluwerthne started out the trend to play freely in early over in ODI’s and the one who really took advantage of the rules was Shahid Afridi, although he was more often a “MISS” rather than a ”HIT” but people around the world fell in love the way he batted. Now we will look at his Limited overs [50 overs - 20/20 ] career with both bat and bowl.

Shahid Afridi Records

Shahid Afridi in a League of his own

6000 runs and 300 wickets: Afridi is the second player only after the Sanath Jaysuriya to have gone past 300 ODI Wickets + 6000 Runs in ODI Cricket and with only 31 years of age and physicaly very fit I ca see him getting to 8000 Runs + 400 Wickets if he can play around 4 more years.

3rd leading wicket-taker from Pakistan

Shahid Afridi (301 wickets): Afridi is 3rd only to the greats of Pakistan Wasim and Waqar to have gone past 300 Wickets and if he can play the way he is currently playing he might get closer to Waqar.

4th leading Spinner with Most wickets to his Name

Only Muralitharan(522), Anil Kumble(337) and Sanath Jayasuria(322) are the bowlers who have more wickets in ODI cricket than Shahid Afridi.

3rd in the List of Most man of the match awards for Pakistan

He has more Man of the match awards than Wasim & Waqar, and with 23 to his name only Inzamam and Saeed Anwar have more man of the match awards than Shahid Afridi.

Most Sixes in Limited over Cricket

Well this is the record whcih had to go to Shahid Afridi as he is known for his massive shots and sixes and he has more sixes to his name than any other cricketer ever, with 366 over all in all formates of the game while 288 in ODI cricket, 26 in T20′s which makes him the King of Sixes.

Fastest Centuries and Fifties

Afridi’s name comes up three times in the top 6 fastest Centuries, while he also hit fifties on 18 balls twice while his strike rate in ODI cricket is more than anyone else with 113.

Best Bowling Figures by a Captain in World Cups

Afridi’s 5/16 against Kenya: Afridi started out his 2011 World Cup 2011 campaign in a great fashion and tore Kenya batting lineup apart with 5/16 which happens to be the best bowling figures by a Captain in World Cups he replaced kapil Dev as the Top dog.

    Shahid Afridi is indeed a finer product of cricket on the international scene. His bowling has been improving day by day but it’s not the case with his batting. He should give a little more attention to his batting so that he may really be called the Most Successful cricketer with both, bat and ball. Best of luck to the skipper
