Review - Game Changer by Shahid Afridi & Wajahat S. Khan

Author - Shahid Afridi & Wajahat S. Khan

Publisher - HarperCollins 

Pages - 252

Blurb: Game Changer is the riveting memoir of Shahid Afridi, one of modern cricket's most controversial and accomplished practitioners. In 1996, as a teenager, Afridi shot to fame after hammering the fastest ODI century at the time. One of the world's greatest all-rounders, today, he holds the distinction of having hit the most number of sixes in the history of ODI cricket scooping the most wickets in T20s and winning the most player-of-the match awards in the same format. From his humble beginnings in the mountains of Pakistan's unruly northwest to the mean streets of Karachi and the county parks of southern England, Afridi tells his life story just the way he bats - instinctively, candidly and with no holds barred. In a career as unpredictable as his leg-break googlies and 'boom-boom' power hitting, Afridi has been many things - the lost kid focused on pulling his parents out of poverty, the desperate captain trying not to snitch on his corrupt teammates, the gallant Pashtun centurion staring down a hostile Indian crowd, and the bad boy at the centre of a ball-tampering scandal. In Game Changer, he sets the record straight once and for all. A must-read not only for his legion of fans across the world but also for those interested in cricket and Pakistan's future.

Review: Game Changer by Shahid Afridi with Wajahat S. Khan The book starts with the foreword by Wasim Akram how he found new talent in Pakistan in Pakistan Cricket Board in the form of Shahid Afridi a young guy. 
When the selectors weren't sure about his ability Wasim supported him and stood for him and his valuable talent, and Helped him to boost his confidence level in every possible way.

In this book, Shahid Afridi has spoken about his whole journey how he started and how he improved.
The book has a very amusing incident and sad incident too when Shahid faced a massive problem his name got involved In the controversies, spot-fixing scandals, politics and rivalries around the dressing room and many more.
How he prepared himself to recover from these incidents. He also speaks about the game India vs Pakistan with all the true facts which are relatable. How he worked hard towards his team and gave his best for PCB.

Every cricket fan should read this Autobiography to learn many things which may help you in life.
