Shahid Afridi just five wickets short to become ‘only’ all rounder

NAPIER: Pakistani all rounder ‘Boom Boom’ Shahid Afridi on Wednesday achieved half of the  target what he wished before start of the World Cup as he joined the 8,000 one-day run club during his 21 not out against the United Arab Emirates in the World Cup.

For other half of his target he is just five wickets short to complete 400 one-day wickets.

Before leaving for one day Afridi had expressed his wish that he wanted to cross the 8,000 runs and 400 wickets achievement for his career during the World Cup.

Afridi who could not perform in the World Cup impressively in first two matches against India and West Indies, became the fourth Pakistani after Inzamam-ul Haq, Mohammad Yousuf and Saeed Anwar to make 8,000 one-day runs and the 27th of all time.

The all rounder who also took 2-35 in the 129-run win, needs five more wickets to complete 400 one-day wickets.

If he takes those five wickets, he will become the only all rounder to score more than 8,000 runs and take 400 wickets.
