Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi enjoys an enormous fan following,especially among females. Back in 2000, the cricketer made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Afridi, Atiq-uz-Zamanand Hasan Raza were caught in a hotel room along with some girls. They tried to defend themselves and said that the girls came to collect autographs. But they could not persuade the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) and were banned from the ICC Champions Trophy in Kenya.
