National cricket team’s fast bowler, Shaheen Shah Afridi, delivered a stunning performance in Asia Cup 2023 that left former South African captain and cricket legend AB de Villiers with a reevaluation.
Prior to the highly anticipated clash between Pakistan and India in the Asia Cup 2023, AB de Villiers expressed doubts about Shaheen Afridi’s form, suggesting the possibility of a minor injury.
However, in the match against India, Afridi showcased his prowess by dismissing the top four Indian batsmen for just 35 runs within his allotted 10 overs. Unfortunately, rain interrupted the game, resulting in both teams settling for a point each.
Shaheen Afridi’s exceptional bowling saw him claim the Wickets of Cricket giants Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja during the heated contest against traditional rivals India.
Due to the rain-induced postponement of the match, Pakistan has secured a spot in the Super 4 stage. Meanwhile, India must secure victory in their match against Nepal to maintain their chance of advancing.
It’s worth noting that if India prevails against Nepal, a potentially thrilling encounter between Pakistan and India in the Super Four stage could await on September 10, further intensifying the cricketing rivalry.
