Shaheen Afridi has quickly risen in stature to become one of the most exciting pace sensations in the cricketing world at the moment. The teenager made his international debut in April 2018, just months after playing his first four-day game in domestic cricket and has already become a vital cog in Pakistan’s bowling attack.
The left-armer recently shared a picture from his days in Pakistan’s Under-16 side. Shaheen remarked that this was his first cricket trial experience and had borrowed sporting gear from his brothers yet managed to get selected to represent the team for the Australia tour.
He requested prayers from his loyal fan base as he joins the national squad for the two Test matches to be conducted in Australia later this month. While his performances in white-ball cricket have already caught the attention of everyone, Shaheen has only played three games in the Test format so far.
