The Pakistan as a country has been producing terrific fast bowlers at present and the players like Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis are living legends. One such example of a bowler is Shaheen Afridi who has been playing in the international cricket since the age of 18. He has made great strides in his career, and his stint with the county team, Hampshire has also helped him to develop as a great seam bowler. He has been the leading wicket-taker in the PSL and continues to impress everyone by his pace and accuracy.
The Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali along with Shaheen Afridi provided quick breakthroughs for the Pakistan team in the powerplay overs. The experienced players Dawid Malan and Zak Crawley were dismissed by them to cause an upset to the hosts.
During the 5th over of the England innings, Zak Crawley faced his first ball, which was a brilliant yorker by Shaheen Afridi. He was completely bamboozled by the fact that the bowler will try a yorker in his first ball.
