BOOM BOOM AFRIDI
SHAHID KHAN AFRIDI WITH WAJAHAT S.KHAN
Game Changer is the first Autobiography of Shahid Khan Afridi, one of cricket’s most controversial and popular all-rounders and Pakistan’s biggest cricket Superstar After Imran Khan.
This tale that begins with the cricket world’s most famous batting debut when, at age nineteen (19), not sixteen (16) as has been believed till now, he scored a century in 37-ball against that time world champions Sri Lanka the fastest Cricket Century of the world had ever seen . Since that incredible innings in Nairobi on 4 October 1996, Afridi’s career has been quite similar to that of a suddenly successful Hollywood star who stumbles in and out of scandal, is led astray by his youth, good looks, talent and overconfidence, but is still adored for his performances.
Yet, over twenty years since his swashbuckling start, it is clear that Afridi is not a one-hit wonder. Despite inconsistent performances, he is one of the few cricketers to have earned a globally recognised nickname – Boom Boom – for his aggressive batting.
