Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi is celebrating his birthday on March 1 and has also thanked the fans for wishing him. Afridi said that his family and fans have tweeted thousands to wish him, for which he is thankful. But his tweet caught everyone's attention.
Afridi said, "Happy Birthday to all! Wishing everyone! 44! My family and my fans are my greatest assets."
Shahid Afridi's age is being told 41 years on many websites. After this, his fans are wondering what the real age of this former Pakistani captain is. People have become more skeptical about what his real birthday is because he has given the year of birth as different in his autobiography.
He confirmed that he turned 44 on Monday but according to official International Cricket Council (ICC) records, it still shows 41.
In 2019, Afridi revealed his true age in his autobiography titled 'Game Changer'. According to a report by ESPN Cricinfo, Afridi wrote in his book that he was born in 1975 and not according to official records in 1980.
Some fans congratulated Shahid Afridi on his birthday, while many people also surprised him about the year of birth. People said that Afridi has three birthdays together. Many fans asked this question, what will happen to the records of Afridi regarding his age?
