Afridi’s done it!

Shahid Afridi joined an illustrious crowd yesterday.
The Pakistan captain became the 11th player to achieve 300 wickets in One-Day Internationals en route to helping his side complete an important victory over Sri Lanka in their World Cup match at the Premeadasa Stadium.
The leg-spinner reached the milestone when he dismissed his opposite number Kumar Sangakkara and went to finish with four for 34 – a performance after his five-wicket haul against Kenya in Pakistan’s first match.
Afridi is the third Pakistani to top 300 wickets in the 50-over game, following fast bowlers Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis.
Pakistan made 277 for seven and restricted their opponents to 266 for nine to complete their second successive win.
