Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi is one of the most loved cricketers in the world. Apart from his swashbuckling batting style, Afridi's typical arms-raised celebration was perhaps one of the things fans looked forward to the most during a match. On Saturday, Afridi uploaded his daughter's picture who was seen celebrating a wicket in her father's style. However, what caught fan's eye was a lion sitting in the background of his daughter's picture.

Fans started asking Afridi about the lion on social media.

Afridi announced his retirement from international cricket in February 2017.

Nicknamed 'Boom Boom', Afridi had been a fan favourite since he burst onto the scene in 1996, striking a 37-ball one-day century against Sri Lanka in only his second match to set a world record that was unbeaten for 18 years.

Afridi finished his international career having played just 27 Test matches which yielded 1,176 runs with a highest score of 156 and 48 wickets.

Afridi played 398 ODIs with 8,064 runs, a highest score of 124 while taking 395 wickets.

His T20I career saw him play 98 matches with 1,405 runs and a career-leading 97 wickets.
