Shaheen Afridi Hits New Milestone in PAK vs IND Asia Cup 2023 Match

Pakistani pacer Shaheen Afridi has achieved another milestone in his cricketing career. During the second game of the Asia Cup 2023 against India, Afridi’s exceptional bowling spell helped him reach a significant landmark.

Afridi, with his four-wicket haul against India, completed his 250 wickets across all formats of cricket. This achievement places him as the third Pakistani and seventh overall bowler to reach this milestone before turning 24. He follows in the footsteps of Pakistani cricket legends Waqar Younis and Saqlain Mushtaq, who previously held this title.

The match saw a thrilling performance from the Pakistani pace trio, including Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah. Together, they took nine wickets, restricting the Indian team to a total of 266 runs. Despite strong efforts from Indian batsmen Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya, who built a solid fifth-wicket partnership, the top order, including Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, struggled against the formidable Pakistani bowling attack.

This achievement marks another high point in Afridi’s career, demonstrating his growing stature in international cricket. His performance in the Asia Cup 2023 further cements his position as one of the leading figures in Pakistan’s cricketing landscape.
