#12 — 100 In 37 Balls: With big-hitting that was as scarcely believable as his official age, Shahid Afridi announced himself to the world with one of the most famous centuries of all: 102 off 40 balls, 11 sixes, six fours and one harassed looking Sri Lankan left-arm spinner who had finally understood the meaning of the expression "the shoe is on the other foot."
Don't miss Muttiah Muralitharan floating a couple of leggies to Afridi, beating him in the flight but the teenager still adjusting his hitting arc and sending the balls flying out of the Gymkhana Ground in Nairobi.
#11 — 32 Runs, One Over: This innings began with a little by-play between Malinga Bandara and Afridi. The leg-spinner caught Afridi charging down the pitch and didn't deliver the ball. Not one to be outdone, Afridi showed Bandara what he would have done had he released the ball. That was before Afridi tore into the young leggie, hitting him for 4, 4, 6, 6, 6 and 6.
#10 — Fast Scoring? What About Fast Bowling? — Afridi is known to mix some faster ones with his leg spinners, but what about opening the attack bowling seam-ups? That's what he did in one of the Test matches against India in the 2006 home series.
#9 — A Fiver On Test Debut: One little known highlight of Afridi's career was the five-for he took on Test debut against Australia in 1998. Shortly after that, he came out to bat and his first ball in Test cricket for four.
#8 — When Hungry, Bite: One of the most bizarre things ever occurred on a cricket field when Afridi bit into a cricket ball in an ODI against South Africa in Perth. He obviously did it to alter the condition of the ball. The act earned him a swift two-game penalty.
#7 — Scoring A 12: Tom Moody, whose home ground WACA is, reckons this was the biggest hit he has seen at the ground. This was the pathan's pure power at its best.
#6 — Nearly Ending Shoaib Malik's Career: This incredible catch helped Pakistan win a tight one-day match in England, and gave Malik some pain.
#5 — Punishing India: That time when he reached hundred before the fielding restrictions were lifted. Don't miss Zaheer Khan's sheepish smile after being thrashed.
#4 — Bludgeoning Harbhajan: The Indian off-spinner was hit for four consecutive sixes at the start of this over in 2006. Afridi clearly wanted to go for the perfect six, but it wasn't to be when he mishit the fifth.
#3 — Afridi vs Gambhir: One of the most replayed visual in the history of India-Pak cricket is this clip of Gautam Gambhir clashing with the Pakistani during a 2007 ODI in Kanpur.
#2 — Is This The Biggest Hit Ever? Ryan McLaren had started celebrating dismissing Afridi when the umpires called a no-ball. Afridi, batting with an injured thumb, lined himself up for the free hit. Look where the ball ended. Fans are hysterical that this hit may have passed 150 metres, but it may have been closer to 120.
#1 — Caffeine Fuelled Rage: Pepsi's commercials are a source of hilarity and it's too bad that sometimes you don't get to see the international commercials in your own country. So here's one featuring Misbah-ul Haq and Lala.
