How Shahid Afridi spends his free time...

I'm sure many of you wonder how all the different cricketers spend their time off the field, what they do in their free time, and so on.

We read about a lot of the off-field activities as well.

Such as Michael Vaughan and his real estate investments, Shane Warne and his nurses, Shoaib Akhtar and his genital warts, Imran Khan and his love child, Andrew Symonds and his "binge drinking", to mention a few.

Shahid Afridi's off-field activities, however, seem to be of a very different kind.

Afridi takes out his gun, calls his men, and goes into the mountains to look for his prey.

He spots his target up in the sky and points to it with a smile that shows that he likes what he is going to shoot.

His men seem to agree.

He then finds an open space, sits down, gets into position with his gun, takes aim, and fires!

Once the target is shot, he gets one of his men to fetch it and hold it up for the cameras.

Afridi poses with it, looking as pleased as he does when he gets his targets on the cricket field.

I wonder if the Afridi one-arm-raised salute comes out every time he connects with his fire.

Once he's done with all his hunting, he resigns to his farm house, where he plays with snakes in his back yard.

See it all yourself to believe it.

  4. Yenjie said...
     

    Hence the term "ChiDimaar". :-)

  5. Q said...
     

    Maneka Gandhi, PETA, yeh sub kaun hai?

    Nothing like that exists in Pakistan..

  6. Q said...

    Hahahaha.. good one Yenjie!

  7. Rayden said...
     

    Q - you guys are lucky there is no Menaka Gandhi in Pak.

    As for PETA - Thats People for Ethical Treatment of Animals. They are there worldwide now and make life hell for hunters etc. So much so that nowadays they are after non-vegeterians to convert to being a vegeterian. As far as I am concerned, I cant live without my seafood so I am probably in the hitlist of PETA.

  8. Q said...
     

    Rayden,

    Yeah I know PETA but I don't know whether they r there in Pakistan or not.. and if they are then I'm not sure how much they can enforce their law in the rural areas..

    Hunting goes on rampantly in Pakistan.. I haven't yet heard of a PETA case..

    For all the people talking about Maneka and PETA... there is no such thing as vegetarians in Pakistan. We are a meat eating nation and offering vegetables etc to guests is considered an insult

  23. Pertie said...
     

    Awesome!

  24. Q said...
     

    Thanx Pertie and welcome to Well Pitched.

  25. Husha said...
     

    Funny, but why is this post tagged with "Michael Vaughan" and "genital warts"? :P

  26. Q said...
     

    Husha,

    Welcome to Well Pitched.

    I tagged MV and genital warts because of this para:

    "Such as Michael Vaughan and his real estate investments, Shane Warne and his nurses, Shoaib Akhtar and his genital warts, Imran Khan and his love child, Andrew Symonds and his "binge drinking", to mention a few."

    Hay! What a Country is this? Can anyone use full automatic T56 Rifle for hunting in this part of the World? I understand that's the reason there's no law and order in thi Country.And the other thing is what a fool him to use that kind of weapon for hunting whish is made for military purposes.
