If Joe Root Is Context, is Shahid Afridi the anti-Root?
Following various links in the linked article, I found the view that “Afridi’s batting has gone to shit since he retired from Tests“. Hmmmm.

His first T20 century too, which suggests he isn’t the T20 machine he gets stereotyped as.

Afridi isn’t a T20 machine, T20 is a machine designed to get people to “play like Shahid Afridi”, even though Afridi himself doesn’t always “play like Shahid Afridi”.

Shahid Afridi’s retiring.
As in, he’s in the process of quitting playing international cricket (for him, it’s a continual, often reversible procedure – a journey rather than a destination, but one where the protagonist continually forgets stuff, e.g. house keys, phone charger, checking the gas is switched off, etc etc); he’s not shy and fond of his own company or anything.
