What Would You Like to be Remembered As?

Most famous people are asked that question at least once in their lifetime.

Almost every interviewer has that question up their sleeve for the celebrities.

You must have read a number of different answers to that question, such as:

"I would like to be remembered as the most talented actor in India."

"I would like to be remembered as an entertainer."

"I would like to be remembered as an actress and not just a sex symbol."

"I would like to be remembered as a man who served his country to the best of his abilities."

"I would like to be remembered as the fastest bowler in the world."

"I would like to be remembered as the best opener to play for Australia."

"I would like to be remembered as the next Imran Khan."

"I would like to be remembered as a cricketer who always gave his 200%."

But one thing that I am sure you would have never heard before is:

"I would like them to remember me as the craziest cricketer that ever played for Pakistan."

Now who would like to leave a legacy like that?

None other than the one and only Shahid Afridi!

Trust him to go against the norm and come up with something like that.

    Afridi is simply the coolest. People often go "well, the guy's Pathan, that explains the attitude" but actually it doesn't. Nobody comes close. He must've been a handful as a kid.

    I like the response to the Kallis question.
    Thanks for sharing.

    He's arrived at a point in his career where he can be honest about his cricket. Hope this leads to less nakharas.

  3. Stani Army said...

    He comes out with the best ones.

    Last time he was being interviewed after he had played a typical boom boom innings and was asked to describe it. He said that he likes to play like its the highlights!

    He must be a video editors dream!

    Naked Cricket,
    The nakhara with his hair has just started!

  4. Viswanathan said...

    He is playing up to the press and doubt whether he means its.

  5. straight point said...

    it shows that he has finally at peace with himself...

    saw shahid afridi interview "aik din geo ke saath", twas full of great one-liners like that. albeit in URDU. on youtube if u want a laugh but the interviewer is VERY gay

    Btw where is that Wasim Jal Gaya, he didn't make any comment about Fawad Alam?

    Looks like the Karachi Bradman made Sialkothis look like club level cricketers where he made 168 and they scored hardly anything.

    That is why I said these people should use a little bit of Burnol, to get cool and level headed. Giyareenbandi has failed. Yet again.

    He does say some amazingly funny things.. he is also known to have a very good sense of humour.. that was apparent in this interview..

  9. Q said...


    Nakhras? Never thought he had many nakhras.. just didn't think too much..

  10. Q said...


    LOL! I remember that..

    In this interview, my favorite part was this:

    I am a batsman, I always play good when I am imagining batting, but I always mess up when I play in reality. What should I do to improve my batting?

    Shahid Afridi: (laughs) I think you should keep on imagining.

  11. Q said...


    I think he means it.. he's insane!

  12. Q said...


    Probably true.

  13. Q said...


    He always has great one liners.. I know which one ure talking abt and that Varraich guy is truly very gay.. he has a very strange way of talking as well.. I would never be able to keep a straight face while having a convo with him..

  14. Q said...


    Wasim was really happy to see Fawad's knock..

  15. khansahab said...


    I'm sorry I missed it out.

    Where did Wasim Jal Gaya express his appreciation of that knock? On Wellpitched?

  16. Q said...
