Putting an end to all the speculations of another comeback to the Pakistan team, Shahid Afridi has announced his retirement from international cricket.

The maverick all-rounder nicknamed ‘Boom Boom’, had already quit Test cricket in 2010 and retired from one-day internationals in 2015 while he stepped down as the T20 skipper last year. An explosive batsman, who had become a worldwide sensation after blasting a 37-ball one-day century against Sri Lanka in only his second match, Afridi appeared in 98 T20 internationals, scoring 1405 runs at an average of 18 runs. The 36-year old has also taken 97 wickets in the shortest format of the game. He is also the only other all-rounder after South Africa great Jacques Kallis to have a double of 10000 runs and 500 wickets in international cricket. He has scored 10,645 runs and picked up 540 wickets in 523 international matches.

Meanwhile, the Twitter users have taken a dig at the all-rounder after his retirement announcement. The Pakistan all-rounder, in the past, had made retirement announcements only to return to the action again. Here are some of the best reactions:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
