Shaheen Afridi Got Praised: Pakistan’s fast bowler Shaheen Afridi surprised everyone by taking 4 wickets in an over in T20 Blast. Playing for Nottinghamshire, Shaheen took four wickets in the first over itself. Now former Indian opener Akash Chopra has praised Shaheen Afridi. Shaheen did this feat on last Friday.
Akash Chopra said that some of Shaheen’s balls were not playable at all. Had the courage to bowl swing and full at high speed. The former Indian player tweeted, “Yesterday, Shaheen took 4 wickets in the first over of the innings… some balls were unplayable. Swing at high speed… and the courage to bowl so full.”
In his over, Shaheen made the opposition team ie Warwickshire’s Alex Davis (0), Chris Benjamin (0), Dan Mausley (1) and Ed Bernard (0) his victims. Shaheen took the first wicket through LBW. Apart from this, a wicket came through a catch on the fifth ball. On the other hand, the Pakistani bowler bowled the remaining two batsmen and showed them the way to the pavilion. Shaheen bowled the first ball of the over wide, which went behind for four.
