It has been almost three years since former national team captain Shahid Afridi retired from international cricket, but he is still equally popular with fans.
Shahid Afridi was known all over the world for his aggressive batting, but in the second half of his career, his bowling became his specialty, thanks to which his style of celebration was also very much liked by the fans.
Recently, the popular cricket website Kirk Info polled the public to find out which cricketer they like the most around the world.
In this regard, Shahid Afridi is competing with the current captain of the Indian team as well as various cricketers including West Indies’ Sheldon Cottrell, Devin Bravo, Chris Gayle, Kasirk Williams and Imran Tahir.
In the voting, Shahid Afridi took the lead over other players and the fans liked his style of celebration the most by getting more than 3,800 votes.
Shahid Afridi first celebrated in this way after catching a catch in 2006 which later became his specialty and we still see him celebrating in this way in Pakistan Super League.
The West Indies fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell’s second salute was the most popular and received more than 2,200 votes.
We all like the way South Africa’s Imran Tahir took the wicket and ran to the ground with crazy enthusiasm and that is why he is at the third position with 1,600 votes, while Virat Kohli is also his third. One and a half thousand people have voted in style.
David Warner, Dale Steyn and Chris Gayle are ranked fifth, sixth and seventh respectively. In Chris Gayle’s Gangnam style, the party received less than a thousand votes.
The list also includes Shekhar Dhawan’s kabaddi-style celebration, Devin Bravo’s champion dance, Roman Raees ‘wicket-taking, and Caesar Williams’ signature notebook celebration.
England’s Test captain Joe Root also managed to be part of the list in a unique way without dropping, while Russ Taylor’s speech after a century, Bangladeshi wicketkeeper Nazmul Hassan’s serpent dance and Andre Russell’s beautiful dance were also celebrated. Part of the list for voting.
