In the picture, Afridi could be seen holding his little munchkin along with his four other daughters Aqsa, Ansha, Ajwa and Asmara.
Notably, Afridi is married to his maternal cousin Nadia Afridi.
Afridi, who bid adieu to international cricket at the Lord’s cricket stadium on May 31, 2018, appeared in a total of 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 99 T20Is for Pakistan during his illustrious career.
The former Pakistan skipper was a part of the squad that won their maiden and only ICC World T20 trophy in 2009. Afridi had also led Pakistan to the semifinals of the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011.
Afridi had initially announced his retirement from the game in February 2017 before he made his return to lead Pakistan in the Test cricket after a four-year hiatus. However, the return was short-lived as he made just one appearance in the longest format of the game before retirement.
