In case you missed it, former Pakistan Cricket Team captain Shahid Afridi, aka Lala has started his own Youtube channel where he posts videos related to cricket and his humanitarian work.
Recently, Lala gave his fans an exclusive tour of his house in DHA Karachi and needless to say, his fans loved it. The video garnered 2.4 million views in only five days!
The video starts with drone shots of Afridi’s house.
Following that, Afridi welcomes everyone to his house and we are taken straight to the basement which is Afridi’s den. Afridi shares that his house was made two years ago and he chose the area because Moin Khan Cricket Academy is nearby and he regularly visits the academy to play.
The basement of the house has a pool table as well as table tennis.
Afridi then shows us his signed shirt collection – he has a shirt signed by Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakarra, Australian cricketer Shane Warne, Younis Khan and one of Virat Kohli, signed by the entire Indian cricket team. Afridi says that Kohli is one of his most favourite batsmen.
While showing his collection, he also shared fond memories he has with those cricketers. Afridi also showed his trophies and other awards he has gotten over the years. The pool room’s walls are full of pictures and mementos of the cricketer’s matches.
Lala then takes the camera to the drawing-room where he welcomes his guests. The room, done in shades of blue, also has gifts he has received over the years including a gun gifted to him by former Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif and Sachin Tendulkar’s bat with which Afridi made a new record.
“This bat played an essential role in making Shahid Afridi,” said Afridi while speaking about the bat.
We are then taken outside the house. Lala says that he loves green spaces which is why he made this garden where he spends most of his evenings with his family and children.
In the end, Lala showed fans a small annex on the side of his house for his guests who come to stay with him. He said that it is important to give them their privacy.
