Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has been impressed with left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi, saying he is bowling fast with an attitude.

Akhtar’s comments come after Afridi took seven wickets in the two-Test series against South Africa at an average of 28.28.

The 20-year-old was particularly impressive when South Africa were chasing 370 runs to win in the second Test in Rawalpindi as he took four wickets to help Pakistan secure a 95-run win.

“Shaheen came, he bowled fast with attitude. We saw the magic when both pacers (Afridi and Hasan Ali) were bowling together and they wrapped up South Africa quickly,” Akhtar said on his YouTube channel as quoted by Ary Sports.

Afridi will be looking to take more wickets in the three-match T20 series against the Proteas, which begins on Thursday in Lahore.
