Afridi, who made his performance in Pakistan in 1996, played 27 Tests, 398 ODI, and 99 T20I.
Afridi, who started his profession as a starting hitter, became an all-rounder as his job progressed. He scored 1716, 8064, and 1416 races in Tests, ODI, and T20I individually.
His more than useful bowling game gave him 48 wickets in Tests, 395 in ODI, and 98 in T20I. Afridi also drove alongside Pakistan in the 2011 ODI World Cup in which they were defeated in the semifinal by potential India victors.
Afridi held the record for scoring the fastest ODI century for quite some time before Corey Anderson of New Zealand broke it in 2014.
The record for the fastest 100 ODI so far remains with South African AB de Villiers, who had scored a hundred of 31 balls against the Antilles in 2015.
