“Would Be Great To See Him in IPL”, Dinesh Karthik Heaps Praise On Shaheen Afridi

Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets to start their T20 World Cup in style. It was Shaheen Afridi’s brilliant opening spell that set the game up for Pakistan. In this article, we take a look at yet another accolade for the Pakistan pacer as Dinesh Karthik heaps praise on Shaheen Afridi.

The left-arm pacer is receiving accolades from all quarters

Shaheen Afridi was always known to be a special talent but in the game versus India, he proved himself against a high-class opposition and that too when under pressure. While he removed the Indian openers early, Afridi then came back to dismiss Virat Kohli

at the back end. He finished the game with the figures of three wickets from four overs, giving away only 31 runs. Since then, he has been receiving appreciation from everywhere.

Dinesh Karthik heaps praise on Shaheen Afridi

Dinesh Karthik, who recently joined Cricbuzz, talked about the Pakistan pacer’s performance against India on the platform. He said, “The beauty of him is that in his mind he is a very attacking bowler. He plans to take wickets up front and if there is swing, he bowls full. The first ball Rohit received was unplayable and to beat KL Rahul with shear pace takes a lot of effort. That shows his skill level and you can understand why he is one of the best bowlers in the world.”

Pakistan players do not play in the Indian Premier League. However, DK said he would be excited if Shaheen would turn up in the IPL. Regarding this, the Tamil Nadu player told, “In all three formats his record is phenomenal and that doesn’t come around by being ordinary. Obviously, he has got some special skills. In many ways, if he comes to IPL it would be great to see how he is.” If Afridi can retain the same form, Pakistan will have a good chance of going all the way in the tournament.
