Shaheen Shah Afridi, Pakistan’s rising star bowler, bowled a dream spell against India in his side’s opening encounter at Dubai International Stadium. The Pakistani pacer dismantled India’s top three and ensured that Pakistan doesn’t have to chase a huge total.
Shaheen Shah Afridi dismissed Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli and pushed breaks into India’s scoring rate. He first dismissed Rohit for a golden duck as India’s new T20I captain was caught plumb in front of his stumps. Then he shattered the stumps of in form KL Rahul with another unplayable inswinger.
Then to complete the trio, as he dismissed Indian captain Kohli who edged the ball to Mohammad Rizwan behind the stumps. His spell showed shades of what Mohammed Amir did against India’s top three in the Champions Trophy final in 2017.
In the game against Namibia, Afridi was fielding at the boundary line. The crowd started chanting Rohit Sharma’s name, Afridi mocked the way the ‘Hitman’ was trapped in front of the stumps. Later, when the crowd chanted the names of both KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, Afridi mocked the way the two batsmen were dismissed by him in the clash between India and Pakistan.
