Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi has caught the attention of two Big Bash League (BBL) teams, with both reportedly keen to sign him.
The 20-year-old has established himself as one of the top fast bowlers in the world and is also the spearhead of Pakistan’s pace attack.
In addition to the BBL franchises, Afridi is also wanted by a couple of county teams for next season.
He recently played for Hampshire in the Vitality Blast and impressed everyone in one particular game against Middlesex on September 20.
In that match, Afridi took incredible figures of 6-19, which included him claiming four wickets in four balls.
As a result, he became just the seventh men’s cricketer to achieve that remarkable feat in T20 cricket.
