Shaheen Shah Afridi has burst onto the international scene with some spellbinding performances. Keeping intact Pakistan’s proud pace tradition, the young left-armer has already caught everyone’s eye with great control over pace and swing.
The teenager ran riot over the New Zealand lineup for the second time in two matches, as he picked up 4 wickets once again. Shaheen bettered his best bowling figures as he finished his spell with 4/38 in 9 overs.
He has thus raised his tally in the 3-match series to 8 wickets with a game still to go. This allows him a chance to dethrone Waqar Younis for the most number of wickets taken by a bowler under the age of 19 in a 3-match ODI series, as the former skipper leads the list with 11 wickets.
