He got Tendulkar like 14 times in the knockouts didn't he, was hilarious.I despised Afridi. For supposedly an X factor player, he was dog**** in World Cups and never did anything against the stronger attacks. Even in 2011, if you take out minnows, he was bang average. Took less than a wicket per game and averaged 23 with the bat.
I would hazard to guess that Jedi doesn't really keep up with Pakistani celebrity gossip
Of course you think that
Yep, this. Afridi's 'economical, but not particularly threatening' bowling and 'crazy strike rate, not great average' batting is pretty much the opposite of ideal for Tests, but great for limited overs. I do think Jadeja has value as an ODI player though, just not enough for this comparison.I am a huge fan of Jadeja and I have voted for Afridi. Afridi was an ODI cricketer and Jadeja is a test cricketer. So, this is not an apples to apples comparison.
Unrelated to this, but why did afridi not play more test cricket? 1700 runs @36 and a sr of 87 with 5 hundreds and 48 wickets @35. Those are good numbers.I am a huge fan of Jadeja and I have voted for Afridi. Afridi was an ODI cricketer and Jadeja is a test cricketer. So, this is not an apples to apples comparison.
