Australia captain Aaron Finch heaped praise on Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi, saying he “has been in really good form”.
Afridi was in tremendous form in the recent T20 World Cup as he claimed seven wickets in six matches at an average of 24.14 and an economy rate of 7.04.
“Shaheen has been in really good form for Pakistan,” Finch was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan kicked off their tour of Bangladesh on Friday with a four-wicket win in the first T20 International. However, Afridi was rested for the game.
They will play two more T20 Internationals before the two-Test series begins on November 26.
