Shahid Afridi Foundation is a nonprofit enterprise that was inaugurated in 2014. The business enterprise pursuances to offer proper healthcare, education and sports activities material facilities in Pakistan. Afridi was the main personality behind the emergence of a new cup in order to help the people of his country.

However, coming to Babar Azam, he already attained newer heights in the game of cricket ever since he donned the Jersey of Pakistan. The latest achievement is something he will relish for the rest of his life as the knock came in a match that helps the people of his home country.

He knocked runs at a mind-boggling strike rate of 384.62. It was earlier predicted that knocking big tallies in T20I cricket in less balls are only owned by the power hitters like Afridi, Gayle, AB de Villiers, Finch but the latest achievements from Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam proves that the game of cricket needs skills rather than any other.
