He is well known for this excellent boundary setting. He is one of the outstanding all-rounders in the world. As well as for his aggressive batting style with the right arm, he was known for his convenient bowling, which was based on a change of pace instead of a pin change. However, Afridi believes he is a better bowler than a batsman. He broke the record for the fastest century in ODI cricket, hitting a century in 37 balls during the first international innings of the Pakistan cricket team. In July 2010, he announced his retirement from Test, cricket. In February 2017, he retired from ODI, T20 and international cricket following the ICC World Cup.

After withdrawing his conditional retirement in October 2011, Afridi was selected for the Sri Lanka tour. Afridi became the only cricketer to score a half-century in two different ODIs while taking five wickets. In 2012, he became the first person to score a fifty in a T20 international for the first Afridi provided an outstanding all-around performance in the first ODI against the West Indies in July 2013. Pakistan reached a respectable total of 224 with an aggressive score of 76 and beat West Indies with an outstanding bowling performance of 7-12.

Against both Sri Lanka and South Africa, Afridi had an impressive run with the ball in 2013. The Pakistani selectors returned to Afridi after Hafeez resigned as T20 captain. During the third one-day international against Australia, he was captain when Misbah ul Haq decided to take a break. It is notable that Afridi, who is known for making irresponsible shots in the past, no longer exhibits that tendency. The all-rounder batted sensibly in almost every game and scored two fifties. The all-around skills possessed by Afridi made him a force to be reckoned with at the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Where he made cameo appearances in nearly every match. Pakistan finished the tournament in the quarterfinals, and Afridi retired from the 50-over format, insisting that he would continue playing the shorter format of the game. The PCB only appointed Afridi as captain in T20Is since he had informed them of his retirement following the 2016 World T20. There were no clear answers to this question, but there was undoubtedly confusion in the team and the board. Pakistan’s poor performance at the 2016 World T20 was the final straw.

Afridi was dropped after the tournament following the expected ‘retirement’ that failed to materialize. Afridi became the centre of social media jokes due to his penchant for short-lived retirements. During his career, he retired five times before returning four times. In February 2017, he announced his decision and bid farewell to international cricket. He has been taking part in T20 franchise leagues around the world. His recent performances for Hampshire in the 2017 Natwest T20 Blast in England showcase how he has recovered his mojo in T20 cricket.
