On Sunday, 36-year-old legendary Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi announced his retirement from international cricket after a glorious 21-year-long career.
Nicknamed Boom Boom Afridi, the former Pakistani skipper is best known for his explosive batting, having hit a 37-ball ODI century when he was only 16. Now, he has decided to call it quits from the T20 format after a smashing 28-ball 54-run performance in a Pakistan Super League match in Sharjah.
But this isn't the first time that Afridi has retired or considered retirement.
In 2014, he announced that he will retire from the 50-over format after the 2015 World Cup and followed up on his announcement, retiring after Pakistan lost to Australia in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
And, in 2016, after announcing his intention of retiring from the T20 format after the 2016 ICC World Twenty20, Afridi once again reconsidered his decision.
Unsurprisingly, the master of retirements has become the butt of jokes on the Internet.
