Pak vs SA: What milestone Shaheen Shah Afridi unlocked?

Pak vs SA: What milestone Shaheen Shah Afridi unlocked?

On Thursday, whilst facing South Africa in their fourth game of the Super 12 round, Pakistan’s Shaheen Shah Afridi became the youngest pacer to achieve 50 T20I wickets. He came across the feat whilst picking Rilee Rossouw’s wicket in his second over in order to complete 50 T20I wickets.

Standing in his 44th game, he finally made a stronger comeback everyone has been anticipating since the pacer suffered a knee injury and was supposed to heal fully. However, he was not found as fit in the recent matches as Pakistan encountered India and Zimbabwe. Yet, his spell against the Proteas was worth describing.

Afridi grasped a three-wicket haul and threw away only 14 runs from three overs. He was one of the crucial assets for Pakistan during Pak vs SA as he, alongside other bowlers, assessed restricting South Africa on a low score of 108 runs in 14 overs.

Although he had been struggling in the World Cup 2022 before Pak vs SA, but gained the momentum people had been anticipating to lookout from him. He managed to get only a single wicket from the last three games, which came against the Netherlands.

Pakistan’s frontline pacer now has 51 T20I scalps from 44 games.
