In the world of cricket, Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi stands as a formidable bowler, captivating the fans with his brilliant bowling prowess. In recent times, his dominance, however, was hindered due to a persistent knee injury that kept him on the sidelines for some time. But, a ray of hope shines as he makes a great return ahead of major tournaments.

His recent performance witnessed him exhibiting his formidable pace, a unique visual of Afridi’s spine-chilling pace was captured by a batter’s helmet camera, which is now going rapidly viral on social media. Notably, during The Hundred fixture against the Southern Brave, Afridi bowled a short-pitched bouncer to Finn Allen, which he countered it by playing a cunning reverse scoop.

The boundary over the short third showcased Allen’s creativity and Afridi‘s raw pace. The match witnessed Welsh Fire being restricted to a meagre total of 87, with George Garton, the former RCB pacer, emerging as a standout performer with figures of 3/8. Even though Shaheen remained wicketless, he ensured to keep it tight and keep the pressure on the batters allowing other bowlers to encash on it. As a result, the Brave chased down a paltry target quite easily.

The left-arm pacer, acclaimed as the top new-ball bowler across formats, struggled to reclaim his place. But the tides have changed; Afridi’s relentless determination to recover has paid off, instilling a positive outlook for Pakistan’s forthcoming campaigns in the Asia Cup 2023 and World Cup.
