Afridi, who started his ODI career against Kenya at Nairobi way back in 1996, will love to end his 18 year ODI career on a high with World Cup glory. 

Afridi till now has played 389 ODIs and has taken 391 wickets at an economy rate of 4.62. He has also scored 7870 runs at an average of 23.49 with 6 hundreds. Afridi had quit Tests in 2010 before leading Pakistan to the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2011.
