Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has been impressed with left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s outstanding performances as of late.
In the T20 World Cup, Afridi picked up seven wickets in six games at an average of 24.14 and an economy rate of 7.04.
As for the three T20 Internationals against Bangladesh, he only played one game but stamped his authority in it as he finished with figures of 2-15 off his four overs.
In the two Tests that followed, he continued to have a major impact as he took 10 wickets, which included a five-for, at an average of 13.60.
Most recently, he claimed four wickets in two T20 Internationals against the West Indies at an average of 15.25 and an economy rate of 7.62.
