Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi has said that bowling coach Waqar Younis is his teacher and he listens whenever the legendary fast bowler speaks.

Afridi has been in red-hot form lately and has continued to shine in the ongoing ODI series against Zimbabwe.

In the first ODI on Friday, he took figures of 5-49 off his 10 overs to lead Pakistan to a 26-run win.

Even though he didn’t take any wickets in the second ODI on Sunday, the 20-year-old kept it tight as he only conceded 36 runs from his 10 overs.

Waqar himself considers Afridi to be a “wonderful talent” and is backing him to have a really successful career.

“And when your teacher speaks listen. Listen intently. Then give it your all,” Afridi said on Twitter.

Pakistan hold an unassailable 2-0 lead going into the third ODI against Zimbabwe in Rawalpindi on Tuesday.
