Afridi announces retirement from worldwide cricket

About 2 years everyone is talking about the retirement of Pakistan famous cricketer Shahid Afridi.

"I have said goodbye to global cricket", Afridi said in Sharjah. I will continue to play league cricket for another two years and then concentrate on my foundation, which is important for me.

Staying with cricket, Steve Smith has replaced MS Dhoni as the captain of the Rising Pune Supergiants for the upcoming IPL season.

In 2011, Afridi announced retirement from worldwide cricket but said he would make a return if the existing Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was replaced. Last year, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan said he had reached an agreement with Afridi that he would step down after the World T20.

Whatever worldwide cricket I had to play I have played.

Afridi last played for Pakistan in March previous year, in World T20, since then there was a question mark on his global future as the former captain was aiming for a farewell match, which never happened.

He became known as a leg-spin bowling all-rounder in the second half of his career and was instrumental in Pakistan's early successes in Twenty20, including their 2009 victory.

After making his debut in October 1996, Afridi has featured in 398 One-Day Internationals for Pakistan in which he has scored 8064 runs and also snared 395 wickets.

Afridi last played for Pakistan in March 2016, when Pakistan crashed out of the ICC World T20 2016 in the group stage.

He burst onto the scene in 1996 when he smashed 37-ball century in only his second ODI - the then fastest hundred in a one-day worldwide - against Sri Lanka.

In 2014, he announced that he will retire from the 50-over format after the 2015 World Cup and followed up on his announcement, retiring after Pakistan lost to Australia in the quarter-finals of the World Cup. His Twenty20 worldwide career saw him play 98 matches with 1,405 runs and 97 wickets.
