The veteran all-rounder, Shahid Afridi has carries on his good form in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as he continues to be the match winner for Comilla Victorians.
At the age of 38, Afridi is proving to be far from a spent force in T20 cricket. A month's inactivity for a retired cricketer can be a long time, but for Afridi, who has just made a switch from T10 to T20, it seemed merely a break to return re-energized.
Against Rajshahi Kings, Afridi delivered a breathtaking spell of leg-spin as he rattled the opposition batting lineup by picking 3 wickets in a span of just 8 balls. Coming to the bowl in the eighth over of the match, Afridi picked up Mehidy Hasan and Laurie Evans in his first two balls.
Afridi finished his four overs quota giving away just 10 runs while taking 3 crucial wickets and bowling one maiden. The enterprising all-rounder’s match-winning bowling earned him the second man of the match award in three games of BPL so far.
