Pakistan is known for producing world-class bowlers and is often called the land of pacers. Be it Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar or Waqar Younis, the list of speedsters from Pakistan is quite large.
The latest to have grabbed attention for his superb bowling is Shaeen Afridi, who has created a storm in PSL with his fast bowling. And no, he is not related to the Shahid Afridi, the enthralling all-rounder who has given some exciting moments to Pakistan to celebrate.
Meanwhile, Shaheen Afridi featured in the recently concluded International Cricket Council (ICC) Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand that India won for the fourth time.
Now after ICC U-19 World Cup, Shaheen is impressing all with his bowling while playing for the Lahore Qalandars in the on-going Pakistan Super League.
Recently, Shaheen took five wickets for and guided his team Lahore Qalandars to victory over Multan Sultan.

Bowling first, Lahore bowled out Multan for 114 with the help of Afridi’s fantastic performance. Afridi ended with the best bowling figure (3.4-1-4-5) of his career in PSL. Afridi also won the Man-of-the-Match award. Following the target, Lahore won the match in 18.4 overs.
