This free streaming cricket video is a highlights package of the fastest hundred ever scored in a cricket ODI by Shahid Boom Boom Afridi in just 37 balls for Pakistan vs Sri Lanka. Though he had played one ODI match before this, this was the first time Shahid Afridi took guard in a one-day international. It’s quite amazing when you watch this cricket video to see Afridi’s career statistics showing an average of 0.0, and then he goes on to score a century and the fastest century ever at that. Sri Lankan bowlers suffered that day. Afridi derived special pleasure in singling out Sanath Jayasuriya who held the record for the fastest hundred in ODI cricket until that day. 28 runs came off one of Jayasuriya’s overs.
This cricket video is a relentless display of Shahid Boom Boom Afridi’s ability to take apart any bowler given the right conditions (inside his head). It’s a tribute and a sign of what he’s lost out on when you realize that Shahid Afridi is the only one day cricketer/batsman to have scored over 5000 runs at an average less than 25. And one can also bet that Afridi must be the only batsman with over 5000 ODI runs and a strike rate that has been consistently over 105.
Apart from holding the record for the fastest 100 in a one day game of cricket, Shahid Afridi also held the record for the fastest 50 until Jayasuriya broke his record. An amazing statistic that Afridi has is that he holds four of the top eight fastest fiftys ever. In fact he has scored a fifty twice in 18 balls. 50 in 18 balls. What’s wrong with Afridi. When’s he gonna score 18 in 50 balls? In the meantime, enjoy this free cricket clip of what’s more likely.
