Shaheen Shah Afridi is overloaded with praises from the cricketing fraternity as he has equaled the record of Pakistani bowling legend, Wasim Akram.
The world heaps sanction on him as he grabbed his 50th red-ball wicket. Afridi achieved the feat bowling in his 16th Test match, making the appearance versus Zimbabwe.
During Zimbabwe’s first innings, he picked four wickets that make him reach the record of the famous swing bowler, Akram.
He conceded only 43 runs at an economy of 2.84 delivering 15.1 overs along with five maidens. Shaheen disrupted host’s Richard Ngarava, Tendai Chisoro, Blessing Muzarabani, and Prine Masvaure.
Here are a few of the Tweets:
