Shahid Afridi fined for overspeeding on motorway | The Express Tribune

Former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi on Tuesday was fined for overspeeding on a motorway while travelling to Karachi from Lahore.

The star cricketer was fined Rs1,500 by the motorway police for violating speed limits.

The former captain hailed the motorway police, saying law was equal for all and suggested that the speed limit should be increased over 120 kmph.

“Good to interact with a polite staff at @NHMPofficial and I found them very professional. Also my humble suggestion we have very good highways, the speed allowed should be more than 120kph!,” he wrote on his official Twitter handle.

He also took selfies with the motorway police.

Afridi, known as Boom Boom for his blistering sixes during matches, has played 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 99 T20I matches for Pakistan. He has scored 1,716 runs in Tests, 8,064 in ODIs and 1,416 in T20s.
