Shaheen Afridi’s Struggle to Shine in Cricket World Cup 2023

Shaheen Afridi, known as one of the world’s premier pace bowlers, has yet to make a significant impact on the Cricket World Cup 2023 stage, encountering a dip in form during Pakistan’s initial matches. Despite his reputation as a fearsome speedster, his performance in the tournament’s early stages has left much to be desired. With only two wickets to his name in the first two matches, his displays have lacked the usual promise.

However, ahead of the highly anticipated clash against India, Shaheen has expressed determination to claim ‘5 wickets’ and then capture a selfie. Responding boldly to reporters’ requests for a pre-match selfie, he declared, “Zaroor selfie loonga, but five-wicket lene ke baad (I would definitely take one, but only after taking five wickets),” as reported by RevSportz.

Shaheen’s recent form can be exemplified by his six-wicket tally at an average of 69, conceding 276 runs in his last five One Day Internationals. Although he failed to secure any wickets in the warm-up game against Australia, he managed to claim

one scalp each in the initial World Cup matches. Notably, his past encounters with India have been more successful, with a notable performance in the Asia Cup where he dismissed key players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, conceding only 35 runs before the game was disrupted by rain.

While facing a challenging phase in his current form, Shaheen remains focused on revitalizing his gameplay, especially for the upcoming clash against India. Recognized for his proficiency in securing early wickets during powerplay, he remains determined to reclaim his momentum in the tournament.
