Shahid Afridi, popularly known as “Boom Boom” as nicked named by Ravi Shatri because of his explosive batting style, is a former Pakistani cricketer and also the former captain of the Pakistan cricket team.

He is well known for holding the fastest century in just 37 balls, which was later overtaken by South African batsman AB de Villiers. Afridi currently holds the record for the most number of sixes in the history of ODI cricket. On his batting debut against Sri Lanka, he scored the fastest ever century at the time in just 37 balls hitting eleven sixes in the process, which is also a record.

In July 2010, Afridi announced his retirement from Test cricket. After the 2015 ICC World Cup, he retired from ODI cricket as well. In February 2017, he announced his retirement from international cricket.

He still plays for Pakistan Super League as well as other leagues around the world. He conditionally retired twice due to conflicts with the PCB and returned. He finally retired in 2017. His career lasted a total of 21 glorious years.

Did Shahid Afridi revealed his real age?

Today is Pakistan’s star all-rounder’s birthday and many, many fans of his celebrated his birthday.

Last night, Shahid Afridi thanked his fans for his birthday wish and said that it’s his “44th birthday”, tweeted on his official Twitter account.

Shahid Afridi’s date of birth has been a hot topic ever since his autobiography, Game Changer which came out in 2019, revealed his year of birth as 1975.

However, once again, Shahid Afridi makes another confusion as he tweeted that it is his 44th birthday, meaning that he was born in 1977 instead of 1975. But the official page of the ICC shows his birth year is still 1980, meaning he would have been 41 today.

It seems that his tweet has confirmed that he was born in 1977. But in the end, it is still a mystery that Afridi only knows the answer to.
