Anwar Ali has admitted that he loves and is a huge fan of legendary Pakistan all-rounder and former captain Shahid Afridi.
Anwar’s comments about Afridi came during the recent Pakistan Super League (PSL) playoffs, where Afridi represented the Multan Sultans.
On Friday, Afridi starred with the bat in the ongoing Lanka Premier League (LPL) as he smashed 58 runs off 23 balls, which included three boundaries and six sixes, in the Galle Gladiators’ match against the Jaffna Stallions.
Afridi also bowled well in the match as he conceded just 20 runs off his four overs, but his efforts went in vain as the Stallions triumphed by eight wickets.
