The Bangladesh and Pakistan are up against each other in the bilateral T20I series between both the nations. The Pakistan series secured a close victory yesterday in the 1st T20I by 4 wickets. The bowlers were produced fine performances to contain the home team, and the middle order helped the team to chase down a par total on the board. Today they meet in the 2nd T20I of the series and there has been recent controversy with the Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi.
The Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has been terrific for the past few years in the T20 format. But his average performance in the semifinal hurt him as well as the team, as they were unable to reach the finals. His frustration was evident, in the 2nd T20I between Bangladesh and Pakistan, where Shaheen Afridi threw the ball towards the batter Afif Hossain after getting hit for a six in the 3rd over of the innings.

The fast bowler was also involved in an argument with his present team-mate Sarfaraz Ahmed in the Pakistan Super league 2021 as well, and has been quite aggressive with his mindset.
The Bangladesh team managed to post only 107 runs on the board with Shanto being the top run scorer with 40 runs. While Shaheen Afridi and Shadab Khan picked 2 wicket each for Pakistan.
