Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
The former English batsman, Kevin Pietersen lashed out at Pakistan's left-arm seam bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi after he bowled inconsistent lines against Australia with the new ball.
"Someone needs to tell Shaheen that in England, at his pace, he has to pitch the ball up", KP condemned. Shaheen bowled short-pitched deliveries to the Australian openers which helped them settle easily up front.
He did not back up an excellent opening spell from Mohammad Amir and he wasted the pressure built up by Amir's consistency. Shaheen's expensive spell was one of the major factors that Australia managed to score 300+ on a difficult batting wicket.
The 19-year old fast bowler needs to bowl consistent line and lengths if he wants to play long-term cricket for Pakistan.
