Pakistan great Shahid Afridi said left-arm pace bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi was nothing short of brilliant during the T20 World Cup.
Shaheen took seven wickets in six games during the tournament at an average of 24.14 and an economy rate of 7.04.
“I would say he was brilliant in the tournament,” Shahid said on Samaa TV as quoted by Hindustan Times.
In the three-match T20 series against Bangladesh, Shaheen only featured in one game, but took figures of 2-15.
The 21-year-old followed that up with seven wickets in the first Test, which included a five-wicket haul in the second innings.
Pakistan won the first Test by eight wickets and will be looking to secure a 2-0 series win in the ongoing second Test in Dhaka.
