In one of the chapters of his book, Afridi relives the build-up to the terrific knock and narrates how he ended up using Sachin's bat. Former all-rounder made his international debut in a tri-nation series in Kenya and was batting for the first time in international cricket when he played one of his most memorable knocks ever. He slammed a century off 37 balls en-route to a brilliant 102 off 40 balls which was laced with six fours and eleven sixes as he took the Sri Lankan bowlers to the cleaners. Afridi's ton was the fastest by any batsman in ODIs until Corey Anderson broke the record in 2014 with a 36-ball hundred against West Indies.

Talking about the incident, Afridi wrote, "But guess what Waqar did before he took it to Sialkot? He gave it to me, before I went in to bat. So effectively, that first century in Nairobi by Shahid Afridi was made with Sachin Tendulkar's best bat. Go figure,"
