Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi’s career might be in jeopardy. The left-armer was forced to abort his third over — the 15th of the innings — in the T20 World Cup final loss against England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday after an awkward landing on his right knee while taking a catch to dismiss Harry Brook.
Two Pakistani players — pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi and all-rounder Shadab Khan, have been shortlisted for the T20 World Cup 2022 Player of the Tournament award. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has nominated nine exceptional performers for the award. Shadab is the joint highest wicket-taker along with Shaheen for Pakistan with 10 wickets in hand in the mega tournament.
