Napier, Mar 4: Swashbuckling Pakistani allrounder Shahid Afridi joined the 8,000 one-day run club during his 21 not out against the United Arab Emirates in the World Cup at Napier on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old became the fourth Pakistani after Inzamam-ul Haq, Mohammad Yousuf and Saeed Anwar to make 8,000 one-day runs and the 27th of all time.
Afridi, who also took 2-35 in the 129-run win, needs five more wickets to complete 400 one-day wickets.
If he takes those five wickets, he will become the only allrounder to score more than 8,000 runs and take 400 wickets.
Batsmen who have scored 8,000 or more runs in one-day international cricket.
