Golden boy Shaheen creates a world record

Teenage sensation, Shaheen Afridi has been a revelation for Pakistan from last few matches as the fast-bowler single-handedly turn the events for his team with his accurate bowling. After his terrific performance against New Zealand, he continued the same form against Afghanistan.

The tall left-arm seamer picked up 4/47 and became the youngest ever player to take four wickets in a World Cup match. Shaheen’s four scalps included wickets of captain Gulbadin Naib, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zardan and Rashid Khan.

By doing so at the age of 19 years and 84 days, Shaheen not only became the youngest to claim four wickets in a World Cup match but also the first ever teenager to do so. He surpassed Scotland’s John Blain who got four wickets in 1999 World Cup game against Bangladesh, who was 20 years and 140 days old then.
