My Favorite century is against India: Shahid Afridi
When asked Shahid Afridi to pick his best century. The former skipper of Pakistan chose his stunning century against India at Chennai in 1999. It was a Test match which was won by the visitors.
The game will be forever remembered for Shahid Afridi’s brilliance with the bat. He used to open the innings for Pakistan in Test cricket and the knock against India is always a cherishable one for the Boom-Boom tagged Pakistani.
Initially, Pakistan scored 238 runs in the first innings in which Afridi fared poorly to score 11 runs. In reply, Indians were also bundled out for 254 runs on the board. Mushtaq picked a fifer while Afridi picked 3 wickets.
However, then it was all Shahid Afridi who smashed a scintillating 141 runs to see Pakistan posting 254 runs. In chasing the tally, Indians were folded out with 12 runs to spare. Afridi was handed man of the match award.
All in all, it was a great victory for Pakistan on Indian soil. During those days, the emotions were quite high for either team which made the victory taste even sweeter.
Here is the tweet:
Coming to the tweet, a fan named Hassan Shahid asked Shahid Afridi quoting ”Lala your Fav Century against which team?”. The Pakistan all-rounder is quick in replying ”Against India, 141.”
