Shaheen Afridi hopeful to emulate Wasim Akram

Shaheen Afridi is one of the rising fast-bowling talents of Pakistan. Ever since his debut, the adroit quick has produced a noticeable amount of impressive outings. Just before the commencement of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Shaheen was found out of form.

This led management to take a harsh decision of dropping him from the playing eleven. However, Hasan Ali’s bowling woes allowed the 19-year old to get back in the team and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Particularly in the game against New Zealand, Shaheen wreaked havoc to dismantle the top class Kiwi side.

Recently, the Khyber Agency born has expressed his wish to become a bowler like Wasim Akram. Shaheen revealed that he takes Wasim’s tips every now and then which aids him in improving his skills. The lionhearted quick wasn’t even born when Pakistan won their first 50-over World Cup, but he is eager to enjoy the environment this time by helping the green team claim glory in the ongoing mega-event.
