Pakistan’s fast bowling star made his comeback after hurting his knee. In a warm-up match at the T20 World Cup, he hit an Afghan batter with a deadly yorker that crushed his toes.
Shaheen joined the national cricket team in Australia for the big cricket tournament. He has been out for a while with a knee ligament injury but is now ready to play again. Afridi spent weeks in England getting treatment for an injury to his right knee in July during the first Test against Sri Lanka. The injury happened during the first Test.
During today’s game, the pacer gave Afghanistan’s opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz a furious yorker that left the batter limping. Gurbaz was out of the game, and his teammate had to carry him back to the pavilion because his toe hurt.
When Pakistani fans saw Shaheen in the whole rhythm, they got excited. In his first two overs, the fast bowler with the left arm gave up only four runs and took two wickets. In the end, he had 2-29 in four overs.
