Shahid Afridi joins Chevrolet Knights for RAM SLAM T20

The Chevrolet Knights today announce the newest addition to the team as Shahid Afridi will join the team in the RAM SLAM T20. Of Shahid Afridi it can safely be said that cricket never has and never will see another like him. To say he is an allrounder is to say Albert Einstein was a scientist; it tells a criminally bare story.

With a 17 year international cricket career. Variety is his calling and as well as a traditional leg-break, he has two googlies, a conventional offie and a lethal faster one, though this is increasingly rare. All come with the threat of considerable, late drift. He fairly hustles through overs, which in limited-overs formats is a weapon in itself and the package is dangerous.

Afridi is well known around the world for his bmt (big match temperament) to rise above any occasion and his electric personality brings a presence to the game which keep the purists of eyes on the action.

Afridi has the ability to make things happen independent of the match scenario with bat or ball. Often spectacular results are at hand; he owns; for example; two of the fastest ODI hundreds, including the fastest one ever in his first innings ever at the age of 16.

His career strike rates are nearly unmatched.

Nickname “BOOM BOOM” comes from his big hitting approach, he uses his own cricket equipment namely “BOOM BOOM”.

Twenty20 is something he could’ve been made for and he is among the most lethal players of the format, having been player of the tournament of the World Twenty20 in 2007 and led Pakistan to the title two years later with matchwinning all-round hands in the semi and final.

“Afridi will definitely add value to the Chevrolet Knights in both assets of the game batting and bowling. Afridi will also be able to add a mentor role and share great expertise especially to the young players in the team. I believe that we have what it takes to step out as the best team in the up and coming RAM SLAM T20 Challenge.” says Chevrolet Knights CEO Johan van Heerden.

Afridi will meet up with the Chevrolet Knights in Cape Town on the 4th of January 2014 for the teams first RAM SLAM T20 match on the 5th of January 2014 against the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras at Newlands.
