    Shahid Afridi's real age is 37 *Solved*

    ICC building him up as a 32 year old is so funny.

    7:38
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tF5khCCJzgI

    So they build Afridi as a 21 year old in 1996, and expect everyone to forget?

    They were building him up as a 16 year old and than bam the proof was in front of our eyes when they showed his age as not 16, but 21, was it an error or what?

    Afridi was born in 74, making him 37 right now, not 32.

    Funny thing is he's Misbah's age, maybe a few months older/younger, but Misbah looks like he has a few years on Shahid.

    Afridi has aged pretty well IMO.

    He's not one to lie? One of the reasons he was banned from speaking to the media. Why would he lie anyway? To prolong his career? The same career he's ended a few times already and is looking to once again even though he's listed at 32?

    I guess you don't know many pakistani's, trust me man a lot of people lie about there age like no tommorrow, once i asked a guy i knew to see his license, and he showed me while covering the birth year, he thought i was stupid, but he was obvously trying to hide his age.

    36-37 is the right age for him. His fitness has probably been helped by the fact he was just a spinner and batsman. If he was a fast bowler he would have left the seen ages ago.

    Lol at people saying stop worrying about Afridi's age.

    Funny thing is these are the very people who are saying Misbah should drop the bat because he's too old.

    does he look like a 37 year old?
    although I believe he is slightly older than his billed age, but 37 is way too old...
    just for the sake of comparison take Laxman as an example, does he look of the same age as Afridi?

    Afridi is 35. I remember Razzaq was guest at a mela here and he was asked how old he was last year. He was honest and said he was 34. Razzaq and Afridi are the same age. And I am pretty sure that if you do enough research you will find that he was born in 1977.

    Gibbs is 38. He looks much younger than 38 and sure does look younger than Afridi.

    Brett Lee also looks younger than Afridi and he turns 36 this year so I wouldnt be suprised If he is in fact 37

    Yeh I remember Afridi wearing the number 77 shirt for a while (up to world cup 2003). Just like Younus Khan who wears the number 75 for the year he was born, making him 36 years, instead of 34 which is often stated

    I really doubt that, unfortunately it is a custom over here. Most people register their age at least 2 years younger while appearing in high school examination (because HSS certificate serves as an age determining document from there on)
    So even in common public it is customary to state a wrong age. I am a witness to all this.

    I guess the bigger mystery is how Nwzland reaches the semis of every other icc tournament when they have such a weak team.

    True.

    But don't blame us if others completely lose it while facing us in the world cups :kami

    for people who say he isn't 37 because he looks younger.

    Not every person ages quickly. Depends on your routine, diet and how much you give your looks and physique importance. I have a 40 year old neighbor who doesn't look more than 30.

    Besides Afridi gives his appearance a lot of importance and I wouldn't be surprised if he uses fair and lovely in real life as well.

    Played age group cricket with afridi, and I know for a fact he was 20-21 when he made his debut.

    Hasan Raza was 18 when he played his 1st test.

    Hiding your age was a common thing back then. There was one guy who played u-19 for zone 2, who had 2 kids. His kids used to come to watch his u-19 game btw he was a friend and we went to his wedding and knew he was at least 25.

    Has anyone ever wondered why afridi did not play in the 2005 u-15 WC in England?

    Bone testing had just started, and he would have fallen outside the range.

    A fashion designer who used to come to a gym i used to go to in Defence Karachi and knows Shoaib due to the social gatherings they would both frequently meet up at, told me that Akhtar was actually 40 at the time of his retirement in 2011. I wasnt to surprised to hear that either. I am pretty sure a lot of our players lie about their age. Heck Amir could be older than officially reported.

    Bone test(Wrist test) In U19 World cup.

    He passed the test so he can max be 1 year older than he really is.

    Afridi must have submitted fake age to stat sites like cricinfo during its inception. Or when ICC filled information for their record, there must have been some kind of form where he changed it. Also, there is a possibility that when he submitted papers for his passport, he put down fake age.

    Then that means, he was 33 during 2003 World Cup....Damn that pace at age 33 with that long run up.



    But damn 40... now we know why he was always so tired, Buddha
