Pakistan’s Left-arm fast bowlers have always troubled the Indian batsmen: Aaqib Javed
Pakistan’s star pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi has been ruled out of the upcoming Asia Cup-2022 due to a knee injury. Former cricketer Aaqib Javed believes that the workload on Shaheen Afridi is high. Aaqib has said that Shaheen is playing continuously and the workload is enough. Afridi is currently one of the best fast bowlers in the world. His pace and swing have troubled many batsmen.
22-year-old Shaheen Shah Afridi’s bowling average is less than 25 in all three formats. He has been leading the bowling attack of Pakistan for some time now. In the match played during the last edition of T20 World Cup between India and Pakistan (T20 World Cup-2022), Shaheen had performed amazingly and played an important role in the victory.
Now Shaheen will not be able to play in the Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan on 28 August. Aaqib Javed told Geo News, ‘It may be due to workload. Shaheen is playing cricket continuously. There is no doubt that it is a matter of great trouble for Pakistan before the Asia Cup. The team will miss him. Team management should be patient. Do not panic in this situation and let Shaheen recover completely. He has a long career ahead.
He further said, ‘Left-arm fast bowlers have always troubled the Indian batsmen. Amir led us to the Champions Trophy 2017 and Shaheen won the T20 World Cup 2021.
