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.
