Former wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif has called left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi Pakistan’s “chief destroyer”.
This comes after Afridi played a pivotal role in leading Pakistan to a 26-run win in the first ODI against Zimbabwe in Rawalpindi on Friday.
The 20-year-old took figures of 5-49 off his 10 overs in yet another sensational bowling performance, which is starting to become a regular occurrence for him.
However, Latif admitted that Zimbabwe fought well in the match. The tourists were given a boost by batsman Brendan Taylor, who scored 112 off 117 balls, which included 11 boundaries and three sixes.
