Pakistan’s former all-rounder Shahid Afridi has opened up about his memorable century against India, during a One-day International (ODI) match, at Kanpur in 2005.

Afridi smashed India’s bowlers to all parts of the ground with a 46-ball 102 as Pakistan won by five wickets, reaching 252 for five with 7.5 overs to spare in reply to the home side’s 249 for six.

The all-rounder, who was also named player of the match, was dismissed while trying to block a ball from Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh — something which he regrets to this day.

 

Fondly remember this day, one of my most favourite innings. Still regret trying to block that ball after reaching 100 😐 https://t.co/ikvWXcD5BY
