WATCH: Helmet cam view of Shaheen Afridi’s thunderbolt | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The ferocious pace of Shaheen Afridi stands as a true nightmare for batsmen across the globe.

Whether it’s sending stumps to cartwheel or leaving batsmen bewildered with his toe-crushing yorkers, Shaheen has ticked all the boxes with his incredible skills.
A recent video circulating on social media, from The Hundred tournament, captured a moment of Shaheen’s fierce pace.

In the video, captured from a helmet cam, the 23-year-old bowled a short-pitched delivery that travelled like a lightning bolt.

Former Pakistan facer Sarfaraz Nawaz also recently hailed Shaheen and termed him ‘extraordinary’.
“He is an extraordinary bowler and very very lethal in his first two three overs. I have rarely seen a bowler with such control over swing, seam and pace and yorkers with the new ball,” Nawaz was quoted as saying by the Pakistan media.
Shaheen’s next international assignement will be the three-match ODI series against Afghanistan. The ODI series (Aug 22, 24 and 26) will be played in Sri Lanka.
