Great player. Has done so much for Pak cricket compared to Misbah, Malik, Hafeez and the rest of the tuk tuk brigade.
 
Not really sure whether to congratulate him or laugh at him. Everyone else in that list has:
- More runs
- Better high score
- Much higher average
- More centuries
- More fifties
- Even more 4s

...But Afridi has more 6s. So that makes up for it. :afridi

I didn't wanted to get into the arguments in this thread but tell me how many of these players got 459 wickets in all formats he is a balling all rounder only Kallis in this list got 570 wickets in 508 matches which includes 162 Test matches(267 innings). Afridi got 459 wickets in 438 matches he only played 27 Tests (47 innings).

So give credit where credit is due...

I reckon Umar Gul needs to concede 8 more sixes before he has achieved conceding 400 sixes in all formats of cricket -- he can't be that far away surely :) :gul
 
Yes keep getting happy on these small small things.

Scoring 3 fastest hundreds from all time top 7 fastest hundreds in ODI's maybe that's look like a small thing to you also. But in ODI some how Strike Rate really matters because its not a 5 day cricket.

If batting is all about averages thn Sehwaq is a one of the worst player even after scroing 219 because after playing 251 ODI's he still have an average of 35 is that mean Raina is a better player thn sehwag with an average of 37?

Haha but if we look at T20 Kyle Mills is the one who conceded most sixes.
 
i smell hate :afridi


Well Done Lala!

Yes its clearly shown from the posts even they dont read the OP i have mentioned that this thread is not to discuss his average or batting etc but Afridi haters just want to click Reply button and post their hate.
 
Take this extraordinary stat, Afridi has scored almost 10,000 runs, out of which 63% have come in boundaries. So for every 10 scoring balls, at least 6 will go for boundaries. To maintain this to 10,000 runs is unbelievable. Whatever you say about Afridi, love him or hate him, no one can deny the man's got crazy levels of talent.

And more than 25% of his runs have been achieved by scoring sixes.

Don't know why people hate him so much there are many stats i can show but haters will say these stats are just little things There are only 2 players in ODI history with 7000+ runs and 300+ wickets and one of them is Afridi the other one is Jayasurya. Afridi is still playing so who know he might be the first to touch 400 wickets mark

I also think that he is the player with the highest strike rate of batsmen who have scored 7000 ODI runs.

That doesn't sound right.
I got it at a boundary (4 or 6) every 6.6 balls - Across all formats

Test - Boundary every 7.25

ODI - Boundary every 6.52

T20 - Boundary every 5.75


Think the stats are pointless but just correcting you :hafeez

Yes there are only 2 players in ODI's who have 7000+ runs with a strike rate of 100+ one is Afridi with 114.5 and another is Sehwag with 104.3
 
In ODI and T20 cricket these 6s and quick fire 30-40's can change the course of the game and win you matches.. Credit where it is due

I was thinking of removing Afridi from the ODI XI, but on current batting form he can easily play ahead of Younis, Misbah, Malik, Asad

Im talking form where he remains on crease for as long as possible, 30 balls minumum which he has been pulling of this tour

A 30 or 40 with 1 or 2 wickets doesn't sound like a bad deal but haters will hate even if he scores 100+ and take 10 wickets in an innings they will still find some way to show their hate against him.
 
Just look at tendular 4's , LOL

I am curious why Sachin never made a 300 in Tests maybe that's the only batting record he will never achieve because his career is nearly end.

This I have mentioned before. The main reason why he can't be considered to be the greatest batsman of all time, I believe, is because he has never scored a 300 in test matches which shows total domination of mastery of a bowling attack.

Yup in this case Windies are the most lucky guys they are the only team who got 2 players to score 2 triple hundreds. Lara & Gayle they scored 300+ twice in their career

I think you misunderstood my post. I meant out of every 10 scoring shots, i.e. 10 balls where Afridi scored runs, more than 6 of those balls went for a boundary. What you're showing is that Afridi hits a boundary every 6.6 balls he faces (I think?).

No 400 is included in Lara 2 300+ scores (400* & 375) and his 501 came in a county match so we cant add it in his international matches.

I was just saying that they are that blessed that one of their batsmen has achieved 4 scores of over 300.

Re: Afridi Needs 8 More Sixes to Achieve 400 Sixes in all Formats of Cricket

Just for the record, I'm not an Afridi hater, far from it. Apart from the past year when he's been a liability with bat and ball, I've always thought of him as a vital part of the odi and t20 teams. I just think his fanboys go OTT at times. You can't compare him to the other batsmen in the most sixes list.

Yes he has the record for the most sixes, but if he is/was that talented (which I believe he was), isn't it a bit of a shame he couldn't apply himself further to become a great batsman?
 
Congrats to his fans for bringing up this stat, any other useless stat of his we should know about?

oh now thats a tough question to answer... because his records are not useless ....so don't mind if some one didn't post a useless record over here.
 
Lala badnaam huva OP tere liye :23:

OP bhaiya, Lalay ke thread shuru karna paap hai PP mai

It's curfew for Afridi-thread. :yk
 
:afridi is indeed legend and once in lifetime player...no wonder he was selected in World XI team
 
Afridi Needs 562 more match to Reach 1000 match in all Formats of Cricket

Record !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
So many stats .... !!!! every thread..... hey he just needs 608 sixes to reach thousand sixes in all formats... unstoppable. Anyway good for him... in my opinion he should concentrate on the little things like his 350 wicket mark which looks like will take forever....

608 you must be kidding but who know he can get 108 before retirement? 500 sounds cool even 400
 
Lol hate is a big word. To me his record is hardly one to be proud of. Yea he is entertaining and always gets people excited in the way he plays but I am sorry I can not get happy about him reaching this personal mile stone of 400 sixes. He has done some great things for Pakistan like the T20 WC but he has under achieved in terms of his potential. Im sure when he himself will look back at his career he will think he could have done much better.

Ofcourse i was kidding. yeah 500 definitely sounds cool but that would require alot of consistent knocks. Like i said he should concentrate on the 350 wicket one :p

Don't know why but i got a feeling that tomorrow he is going to perform with the ball only not with the bat.
 
Gayle right behind him............

A career surmised by this one stat.

The idiot could have topped his HS in this game but blew it ... going for a six! Almost costing the game.
 
Not a surprise hes got this record, what did you expect from someone whos spent the last 17 years trying to smash every other ball he faces for 6 irrespective of the match situation or whether its there to be hit or not?

When you have six specialist and capable batsmen ahead of him who don't try to smash every ball for six... and perfectly understand match situation......... why would you care what he does?


O... wait ..... never mind!
 
I am 100% sure if somebody play the same # of matches as afridi he will broke this record.
 
And i am talking about allrouder not proper batsman they rarely slog.

Touchy arent we? I was expecting a fanboy to come to his defence And heres one of his biggest

So are you saying if Lara, Kallis, Ponting or Inzi had played as many matches as Sachin, they would have scored 100 100s easily? :p

Why every 5 year old thinks it is all about Afrid-fans and not him? Criticize AFRIDI all you want.... but when you run out of anything to say (read; don't have ANY clue what to say) then just shut up instead of acting like other attention whore here?
 
Difference is its easy to hit 6 then century and you're comparing apple vs oranges.

:))) Hilarious Afridi fans calling others 5 year olds. Pot kettle black!
 
They might have.

If your logic is right thn why after playing 403 ODIs and 138 Tests only 47 centuries in total for Mahela? He is a proper batsman a really good one...

Because he is not as good as sachin you don't have to be good to broke afridi's record.
 
all this talk about Afridi underachieving ... in fact if you examine his entire career I think there's a strong case for arguing that he's overachieved despite his limitations.

Its 2013 - he's represented Pakistan for nearly 17 years - how many Pakistani players can claim that? and in the words of Elton John - he's "still standing"
 
Because he is not as good as sachin you don't have to be good to broke afridi's record.

So are you trying to say you don't have to be good to take 7 wickets and score 70+ runs in same match?

Or are you trying to say that you don't have to be good to take 5 or more wickets and score 50+ runs in same match 3 times against 3 different teams?


Brother the fact is everybody knows he is not a great or legend like Bradman, Imran, Sachin or Lara but credit should be given to him where he contributed...
 
Correct, u just have to bat brainlessly long enough like afridi

Here is an interesting stat for you ...

in tests, Afridi averages higher, scored as many 100s, and took more wickets as Aamir Sohail but played 20 fewer matches. Now Sohail was clearly the better player but how often have you heard folks on PP complain that he underachieved?
 
Correct, u just have to bat brainlessly long enough like afridi

Don't think brainlessly but if any all rounder play the same # of matches of afridi he will broke his records.
 
If he had a brain, he could have been an all time batting great.

He hardly gets bogged down by bowlers, and it doesn't matter what the condition of the pitch is either, it's just what the condition of his brain is during game day.

Why does he score those 70 runs every 10 games or take those 7 wickets every 10 games if he score 35 runs in 3 out of 5 games and take 2 or 1 while giving away 50 runs i will call him good all rounder then and he is doing pretty good job for last few weeks but all we need is consistency but i think its too late for that.

Now if i ask you same question bro why all those allrounders failed to do it twice in their whole career? and he did it 3 times?

Because those all rounders don't/didn't play the same amount of matches, yes his 7 wickets and few others were class but we need consistency.
Could you please post the stats of other allroundars.

Now here is the situation Afridi got it 3 times while the other 2 didn't got it once

Kallis Matches 321
Afridi Matches 359
Jayasuriya Matches 445


But still i am not comparing him with them just for not taking 5 wickets and scoring 50+ in same match doesn't mean they are bad players they are still far better players thn him but he have also contributed many times so we should give him at least a little credit instead of criticizing all the time and saying that he played those many matches that's why he got all this and that...
 
People criticize him for his inconsistency but credit to him and selectors for hitting those sixes.
 
Do not care what all are saying about Afridi , He is still one of a kind . And case close !!!
 
Of all Afridi's records this one is more meaningful as he is known for big hitting.
 
how can any one say he has underachieved.

1.he has being playing for the national team for 17 years so he has been consistant enough
2.he will be remebered as a legend by his fans and is loved even by players just look at the celebrations of the team when amin and babar did as much as him
3. career is defined by how much money you make and he has made lots of money and will continue to after he retires.

what more could he have wanted. he is not a expetional player who players ordianary most of the time. he is a ordianary player who plays expetinaly some time.
