While Pakistan continued their losing streak in all forms of cricket, Shahid Afridi reached an individual landmark today. He completed 6000 career runs in ODIs. I must also say that today he indeed played a very brave innings. Only if few others had stayed longer with him, then Pakistan had the match in their hands. Atleast run-rate was never an issue today.

Anyways, back to the individual records. Afridi has now become Pakistan’s 7th and World’s 40th batsman to reach 6000 ODI runs. Following is the updated list of Pakistanis who have achieved this milestone. Numbers in parenthesis show their World ranking in terms of highest ODI career runs.

1 (4). Inzamam-ul-Haq 11739 runs at an average of 39.52
2 (9). Muhammad Yousuf 9624 runs at 42.39
3 (13). Saeed Anwar 8824 runs at 39.21
4 (25). Javed Miandad 7381 runs at 41.7

    Well Afridi is made brave attempt but opening in particular and batting in general remains a problem. Try Kamran and Salman at opening spot with Razzak as one down who in past has very well served this position. With Afridi in lower middle order Pak dont need Razzak down the order.!!

    Everytime I see Afridi, the images of him chewing balls comes to my mind, what a pity such a immoral leads our team.
