Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed firmly believes that left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi and batsman Haris Sohail “made good comebacks” at the World Cup.
Afridi took 16 wickets in five matches at an average of 14.62.
In Pakistan’s 94-run win over Bangladesh at Lord’s on Friday, he finished with figures of 6-35 off 9.1 overs, which not only made him the youngest bowler to take a five-wicket haul in a World Cup match, but he also registered the best figures by a Pakistan player in a World Cup game.
As for Haris, he scored 198 runs in five matches, which included two half-centuries, at an average of 39.60.
“We started the competition by trying one combination initially but after the India game, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Sohail made good comebacks,” Sarfraz was quoted as saying by PakPassion.
