Shahid Afridi is re­tir­ing again. Twit­ter has a good laugh

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Pak­istani all-rounder Shahid Afridi has an­nounced his re­tire­ment from in­ter­na­tional cricket… yet again. Twit­ter has erupted in jokes around the crick­eter, who’s of­fi­cially 36 years old and has a 21-year ca­reer.

Afridi has made more news for his age and re­tire­ment plans than for achieve­ments — he has an­nounced his re­tire­ment four times in the past 10 years. He first an­nounced his re­tire­ment from Test cricket in 2006, and was quick to with­draw the an­nounce­ment. In 2011, he again an­nounced re­tire­ment, only to come back within months. He spoke of quit­ting one-day in­ter­na­tional cricket af­ter the 2015 World Cup, but then shelved his de­ci­sion and ap­peared in the 2016 ICC World Twenty20. To this lat­est an­nounce­ment, Afridi has added that he still wants to play the do­mes­tic league.
