Shahid Afridi Is Getting Brutally Trolled For His Tweet On His 44th Birthday

Shahid Afridi, one of the biggest match-winners for Pakistan is celebrating his birthday today and fans from all around the world have flooded social media with their amazing birthday wishes. However, amidst all the heartfelt birthday wishes for the cricketer, a debate on his age has once again started on social media.

Well, Shahid Afridi has been a controversial figure – on and off the field. His age has always been a controversial topic of discussion. As the cricketer is celebrating his birthday today, he took to his social media to announce that he turned 44 today, however, his autobiography states that he would by 46. On the other hand, the PCB and other websites claim that he is only 41-year-old.

Yes, you read that right. Shahid Afridi wrote:

“Thank you very much for all the lovely birthday wishes – 44 today! My family and my fans are my biggest assets. Really enjoying my stint with Multan and hope to produce match winning performances for all MS fans.”

The tweet soon went viral and was flooded with reactions from Twitterati, who started trolling the former Pakistani cricketer left, right, and center for his tweet. There were many who came up with hilarious jokes and memes on the same.

Among many a popular Twitter user named Mohandas Menon, who is a cricket/sports statistician according to his Twitter bio, also took to his Twitter and took a dig at Shahid Afridi. He wrote:

“We can now officially change Shahid Afridi’s DOB to 1 Mar 1977 from 1 Mar 1980. This means Afghanistan’s Usman Ghani (17y-242d) is now the youngest to score an ODI 100 (in July 2014). Afridi in Oct 1996 was 19y-217d (& not 16y-217d) when he made the famous 37-ball 100 at Nairobi.”
