Currently, the former Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) playing all-rounder could not open an account against the Rajshahi Royals on Friday, thus registering an unsolicited record.
The report on this record of Afridi was published in Outpakistan newspaper 'The Express Tribune' at 44 times in international cricket. According to this, Afridi has been out in international cricket 44 times without opening an account. Popularly known as Lala, Shahid returned to the pavilion without bothering the scorer 30 times in ODI cricket, 6 in Test cricket and 8 in T20. The remaining 56 matches which he got out to zero were first class, List A and T20 league matches. Sri Lanka's former captain Sanath Jayasuriya is the batsman with the most dismissals in ODIs. He was a victim of this problem 34 times. Both Afridi and Jayasuriya have retired from international cricket.
