Shahid Afridi is known for his warm and comfort nature. He is currently gearing up for Pakistan Super League 2018 (PSL), where he will play for Karachi Kings this year.
This year's PSL will see a total six teams battle for the title – Peshawar Zalmi, Lahore Qalandars, Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad United, Karachi Kings, and Multan Sultans.
PSL 2018 will start from February 22 in UAE and Afridi has already started smashing the balls. A viral video of Pakistani all-rounder is circulating on the internet and has already drawn a lot of attention. The candid video features Afridi and Multan Sultans' skipper Shoaib Malik.

Recently, Afridi was in news for talking about cricketing ties between India and Pakistan. He had said sports should be used to end tensions between the two neighbouring countries than as another tool of politics.
"Due to lack of international cricket between the two countries, we now play either in the ICC tournaments or the events such as Ice Cricket," Geo TV quoted Afridi. "I believe politics should be kept away from sports. It should rather be used as a tool to improve relations between the countries. Sport is something which can play a big role in bringing peace," he added.
