Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi became the fastest pacer to claim 100 ODI wickets on October 31, 2023, during Pakistan’s must-win clash against Bangladesh at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Afridi achieved this feat in his 36th ODI match, breaking the previous record held by Mitchell Starc (37 matches).
That is a great victory for Pakistan! They were the clear favorites to win the match, but it is always good to see them perform well on the big stage. The Netherlands put up a good fight, but they were simply outmatched by a better team.
Shaheen Afridi has climbed to the sixth position in the latest ICC Men’s ODI bowlers ranking. This is a significant achievement for the young pacer, and it is a testament to his hard work and dedication.
