In 1996, as a teenager, Shahid Afridi shot to fame after hammering the fastest ODI century at the time. Counted among the world's greatest all-rounders, Afridi still holds the distinction of having hit the most number of sixes in the history of ODI cricket.
In a career as unpredictable as his leg-break googlies and 'boom-boom' power hitting, Afridi has been many things - the lost kid focused on pulling his parents out of poverty, the desperate captain trying not to snitch on his corrupt teammates, the gallant Pashtun centurion staring down a hostile Indian crowd, and the bad boy at the centre of a ball-tampering scandal. In Game Changer, Afridi tells his life story just the way he batted - instinctively, candidly and with no holds barred.
The riveting memoir of one of modern cricket's most controversial and accomplished practitioners, this is a must-read not only for his legion of fans but also for anyone interested in world cricket.
'As brave as a warrior ... Afridi is one of the strongest men I've known.'
'When runs were needed and big shots required, and when his bat was responding, Shahid Afridi could be the most dangerous player.'
'Shahid Afridi's competitiveness, his never-say-die attitude, his spirit, his energy: all so impressive. A great servant to cricket and to his country.'
