Humble Shaheen plays down comparisons with Akram

Pakistan’s young bowling prodigy, Shaheen Afridi has played down lofty comparisons between him and the legendary Wasim Akram. At the age of just 19, Shaheen has become an important fast-bowler for Pakistan across in all formats, indicating his vast pool of talent.

Although, he has humbly declined any sort of comparison between him and Wasim Akram, who played a crucial role in Pakistan’s only World Cup trophy in 1992. However, the left-arm pacer has admitted that he is eager to replicate Akram’s performance of the 1992 World Cup in upcoming ICC World Cup 2019.

“Of course I would want to replicate his 1992 performance and play a part in the team’s success,” Shaheen said. He has played 10 ODIs so far where he has picked 19 wickets at an average of 19.36 with a decent economy rate of 4.78.
