Pakistan great Javed Miandad said left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi has a bright future ahead of him.
Afridi is the reigning ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year and has built a reputation as one of the top fast bowlers in the sport.
He recently took four wickets in the first Test against Sri Lanka before missing the second Test with a knee injury.
Given how well he has performed and his consistency when it comes to taking wickets, especially with the new ball, Miandad sees great things ahead for the 22-year-old.
“His future is bright,” the legendary batsman was quoted as saying by Cricwick.
However, Afridi has been dealt a huge blow ahead of a busy time for Pakistan as he will miss the Asia Cup and seven-match T20 series against England at home due to the right knee ligament injury he sustained during the Sri Lanka Test series.
