Meeting a Superstar Cricketer!
Our students from Pakistan at our Southampton Junior Centre had a special moment this moment when they met cricket superstar Shahid Afridi!
Nicknamed ‘Boom Boom’ because of his exciting and aggressive batting style, Shahid Afridi is a former captain of the Pakistan national team, and an all-rounder (he bats and bowls). One of the biggest names in cricket, he previously held the record for the fastest century in One Day International (ODI) cricket, scoring 100 from only 37 balls! He is here in Southampton to play for Hampshire in the 2017 Natwest T20 Blast.
We are very grateful to Shahid for meeting our students just before an important match against Glamorgan (which Hampshire won!). Thank you, Boom Boom!
