Former Pakistan fast-bowler Shoaib Akhtar said that all-rounder Shahid Afridi was always at an advantage as he would switch his roles according to the situation during matches.

Afridi, recalling a Test match against India in Lahore in 2006, said that Akhtar always threatened batsmen but was joking around when the pitch became too flat for bowlers to overcome the pain.

The Rawalpindi Express, retweeting Afridi’s post, said that the prolific all-rounder could call himself a batsman or a bowler whenever he wanted.

The Test series opener in Lahore ended without a result.

Pakistan declared their first innings at 679-7 with Mohammad Yousaf, Younis Khan, Afridi and Kamran Akmal scoring centuries.

India managed 410-1 in their first innings with Virender Sehwag playing a 254-run knock while Rahul Dravid remained unbeaten at 128.
