afridi, originally uploaded by kartik kannan.

Shahid afridi seems to having some kinda of a "jehadist" attitude when he plays India.He seems to literally revel when playing against India.Most of his hundereds have come against our famed bowling attack across the 2 decades. I just happened to see both his knocks at lahore and now at Faisalabad,and was stunned into how this guy can just change the complexion of the game with his bold hitting.

One things with these aggressive pakistani cricketers is that they seem to come to form always against India ..the statistics of which made a certain Wasim akram to boldy go to the press and insouciantly remark "Whenever Pakistan needs form we play against India".India has seemed to be the punching bag that Pakistan seems to effortlessly hit upon with a ferocity seen in the eyes of a shoaib akthar or a sami.

Coming to Afridi's case ..this guy's hitting prowess is awesome.If only he gets stuck into the bowling and stays on for 30 overs ... a 400 score in an ODI is a possibility we can start expecting.This Pakistan team looks a lot hungrier for victiry and for once they dont behave like a bunch of jealous women.In those days ..a few years back...each player would start cribbing behind the captain's back and start scotching rumours within the team.Now I am glad they have matured under Inzy and are on their way to becoming a good team.
