KARACHI: As Pakistan team is on the way to New Zealand to participate in the upcoming World Cup 2015, star all-rounder Shahid Afridi said that he want to reclaim the fastest century record in the mega event .

In an interview Shahid Afridi said that he will try to break AB De Villiers’ fastest century record which he made against West Indies.

Afridi said if he achieves the record, it would be a memorable farewell for him and his fans from the limited overs version of the game.


He said the he was happy to see someone like de Villiers class hold the record for  fastest century and fastest half century in One Day Internationals.

Afridi held the record for the fastest one-day hundred for nearly 17 years after smashing 102 off 37 balls against Sri Lanka in Nairobi.

The record was broken by New Zealand’s Corey Anderson in 2014 in Queenstown against the West Indies by just one ball.

Afridi had announced his retirement from ODI cricket after the 2015 World Cup in December.

The all rounder, who is close to completing 400 wickets and 8000 runs in ODIs, having taken 391 wickets and scored 7870 runs so far, said he was hopeful he will be able to reach this landmark in the World Cup.
