The Pakistan cricket fans can not stop talking about the fiery over of Shaheen Shah Afridi that sent two Australian big fish namely David Warner and Marnus Labuchangne back to the pavilion. Afridi is known for his hot first-over spells especially since he dismissed Rohit Sharma in the very first over of the T20I World Cup 2021.
Currently, the first day of the third Test of the Benaud-Qadir Trophy is going on in Lahore. Winning the toss, the visitors are batting first putting Pakistan to the bowling duties. In the pacer’s second over, on the third ball, the bowler released a firecracker of a delivery that went and hit Warner’s pad missing the bat just by a close margin, A marvellous lbw had sent the batter back into the sheds after scoring seven runs.
One ball later, another powerful ball nicked Labuchangne’s bat and landed in the safe hands of Muhammad Rizwan. The Australian top Test batter was forced to return without scoring a single run. Cricket fans can’t get enough of Afridi’s over, they took to Twitter to celebrate his double-wicket in a single over. Here’s what they are saying
Twitter lauds Shaheen Afridi for his brilliant over
