Shaheen’s bowling against India disappointed Shahid Afridi at Asia Cup 2023
Pakistan was set a big goal of 357 runs. But Men in Blue kept them down to 128-8 in 32 overs, even though Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf couldn’t bat because they were hurt. In an interview, Shahid Afridi talked about how the bowlers did and said that Shaheen will have to keep his line and length the same. “You can’t be mad at yourself if you can’t get wickets in the first two overs.”
The 46-year-old man, who is also Shaheen’s father-in-law, said, “You can’t make excuses like this.” Shahid Afridi also talked about the bowling, saying that the bowling was not good, even though the pitch was better. The cricket great liked how fast-bowler Naseem Shah bowled, so he asked why Shaheen didn’t bowl at Naseem’s length. Shahid also answered fans’ questions about why, after winning the toss, the team didn’t choose to bat first.
“If we had bowled well, like Naseem Shah did early in the game, things would have been different. He said, “Shaheen should have bowled like Naseem, but his line and length were off. “After 20–25 overs, I think India had won the game,” he said. But the all-rounder told the team to come back and work on where they went wrong.
