Shahid Afridi Longest SixShahid “Boom Boom” Afridi recorded the longest recorded six in cricket history yesterday, when he managed to hit Lonwabo Tsotsobe a full 158 meters in the third ODI between South Africa and Pakistan on Sunday. The six was part of Afridi’s 88 runs, which came off 48 balls, and included 7 huge sixes. A few more overs, and a bit more luck, and he might have won the match for Pakistan. Unfortunately his luck ran out, soon after he was bowled off a no-ball from McLaren.

Shahid Afridi is still top of the list when it comes to most sixes in ODI cricket, the only man to so far surpass the 300 mark, currently in 308. Twitters was set abuz with comments as Boom Boom lived up to his name. Scott Styris, currently in South Africa playing for the Titans in the domestic T20 competition tweeted ”That was a ridiculously big six from Afridi!”, it certainly was, and that coming from a man who can hit them a mile as well! He later tweeted “Did anyone see a measurement on that Afridi six? Do they even do that here in SA? Way are we guessing? #125m”, some 33 meters out with his guess!

Longest Six By Shahid Afridi Video

Ravi Bopara, also currently playing domestic cricket in South Africa “Shahid Afridi u deserve 12 for that. That is the biggest I’ve ever seen. Massive!!!” Maybe a rule change in T20 cricket, rewarding players that manage to hit the ball into the crowd?

Pat Symcox, former South African spinner, commented on Afridis’ batting style with the following tweet: “De Villiers is like a drummer. He is brutal. Amla is like a violen. He is subtle. Shahid Afridi is like a base drummer” That certainly goes well with the nickname of Boom Boom!! Symcox also tweeted that he was glad not to be part of the South African XI, saying that they had their faces red while Afridi was batting.

Piers Morgan tweeted “Afridi’s nickname is ‘BOOM BOOM’ in honor of his 6-hitting talents – probably why he’s my favorite batsman to watch.” He certainly did live up to his nickname, something we haven’t seen in a while. South Africa should be very worried for the rest of the series, as an confident Afridi, can swing any match in Pakistan favor.

Lord’s Ground @HomeOfCricket tweeted “I’ve just seen a replay of Shahid Afridi’s monster six against South Africa. Wow! Think it would have cleared the Lord’s Pavilion?” They still end the tweet with a question mark? I have no doubt it would have cleared the Lord’s Pavillion!!!

Azhar Mahmood tweeted “ Good to see Afridi back inform! Well played today!” I think the whole world supports this tweet, nothing better than to watch the man himself in full swing!
