Islamabad: 'The retirement is temporary, announcement is permanent' for the 'ever-young' Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who declared to hang his boots from International Cricket for the fourth time in his career that has already spanned 21 years.

The Pakistani cricketer has again become a butt of joke because of his habit of announcing retirement and coming back again and again.

The 36-year-young star Pakistan cricketer was still playing Twenty20 Internationals for his country after retiring from Test Cricket in 2010 and One Day Internationals in 2015.

The flamboyant batsman, however, has yet not retired from domestic Cricket and has promised his fans to continue there for at least two more years.

Afridi shot to fame in his very second match in 1996 by smashing the fastest century off just 37 balls against Sri Lanka, a record which remained unbeaten for 17 long years.

In the second-half of his career, he transformed himself into a bowling all-rounder after a long run without much success with the bat.
