Shaheeh Shah, one of the emerging young talents of Pakistan cricket, made his international debut in a T20I against the West Indies in Karachi in April 2018. He went on to make his ODI and Test debut in the same year and has since become a key part of Pakistan’s fast bowling unit.
In his 22 T20Is Shaheen Afridi has picked up 24 wickets, while he has also claimed 45 wickets in the 21 ODIs. He has also played 15 Test for Pakistan and has 48 wickets under his belt.
Shaheen and Shahid Afridi both were last seen in action in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 which was postponed after several positive cases of coronavirus.
Before the PSL 2021 was postponed, Shaheen was in excellent form for his side Lahore Qalandars and had picked up nine wickets in just four matches.
Shahid Afridi, on the other hand, had a terrible outing in the four matches for Multan Sultans as he failed to even open his account in three successive games.
