Pakistan captain Babar Azam said left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi “has to go further ahead” in his international career, given the amount of work he puts in.
He added that with the way Afridi has been performing, there is a lot more success waiting for the 22-year-old in the future.
In the recent series against Australia, Afridi took nine wickets in three Tests at an average of 36.44.
He then claimed six wickets in two ODIs at an average of 17.16 before finishing with figures of 2-21 off his four overs in the one-off T20 International.
“The way he (Shaheen) works and performs, he has to go further ahead [in his career],” Azam was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Azam and Afridi will both be in action during Pakistan’s three-match ODI series against the West Indies, which will be held in Multan from June 8 to 12.
