Ex-Pakistan quick bowler Umar Gul said left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi has been in “good rhythm” when bowling as of late.
Afridi will spearhead Pakistan’s pace attack in the upcoming T20 World Cup and will be looking to maintain his wicket-taking form.
Currently, he is representing Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the National T20 Cup and is the second-highest wicket-taker with 12 wickets in six matches at an average of 17.16 and an economy rate of 8.58.
“Shaheen Shah is also in good rhythm,” Gul told Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
