Afridi has announced he will retire from ODIs after the World Cup but continue to play T20 cricket.
"You never plan out to set such records. It just happens when you have a very special day and your confidence is sky high. If everything works out for me and it is my special day than I will try to improve the record set by Ab de Villers in New Zealand or in the World Cup," Afridi said in an interview.
He said that he was happy to see a batsman of de Villiers caliber now hold the record for the fastest fifty and century in ODIs.
"He played like a champion to get the record and it was his special day," he said.
Afridi held the record for the fastest one-day hundred for nearly 17 years after blasting 102 off 37 balls against Sri Lanka in Nairobi. His record was bettered by New Zealand's Corey Anderson in 2013 in Queenstown against the West Indies by just one ball.
South African de Villiers improved upon the record against the Windies last week scoring a century from just 31 balls.
