The video of Afridi hitting sixes with such ease and reminiscing old memories got viral on social media and people still call him young enough to contest in international cricket.
It must be noted here that Afridi played 27 Tests and 398 ODIs and 99 T20Is for Pakistan from 1996 to 2016. He had hit most 351 sixes in ODIs and this record is still there in the record books.
