    Bollocks. Missed the deadline for our own email.

  2. 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.

      Pleased to hear that you went on a ramble round the site. More of this sort of thing!

      • I was also reading this earlier, I got quite a long way through the post before I realised what Test it was posted just before….

  3. 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”.

  4. My wife calls him Alfridi.

    This is all I have to add.

  5. 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.
