Shahid Afridi faces ire of fans after flop show in APL 2018

Afridi scored 1 run and conceded over 13 runs per over without any wicket in his team's loss.

Shahid Afridi returned to cricket aftr 3-month layoffFormer Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi has been the king of retirements and making comebacks. He is currently making a comeback into cricket after three months of injury layoff in the ongoing Afghanistan Premier League 2018.

Commentators had commended Afridi for his fitness and looking younger.

The 38-year-old all-rounder is playing for Paktia Panthers and is their marquee player. However, Afridi flopped badly scoring 1 run and conceded over 13 runs per over in his franchise's three-wicket defeat to Kabul Zwanan.

Afridi made his last appearance in the Global T20 Canada, representing the Edmonton Royals franchise. He had a dismal run in that league as well scoring just 1, 5, 2 and an unbeaten 13.

With this show, even his fans seemed to have enough of his failures and vented their ire on Twitter.

Afridi has played for Pakistan in 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 99 T20Is. He has over 8,000 ODI runs and 395 wickets under his belt from 398 matches.
