Afridi said, ‘If I talk about my early years, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Saeed Anwar used to attract me a lot. Watching their games, sitting in front of the TV and watching them. I fulfilled my dream when I started playing with him. If you talk about players from other countries, then there are Brian Lara and Glenn McGrath.
Asked which players influenced you in the modern era, Afridi made a special mention of Pakistan captain Babar Azam, South African batting legend AB de Villiers and Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Afridi said, ‘When it comes to the current generation, I would say AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, they are fantastic. When Fakhar Zaman is in form.
