Srinagar: The recent heroics in ongoing PSL 2023 by Shaheen Shah Afridi have caught the attention of South Africa pace legend Dale Steyn who has termed Pakistan pacer best in the business.
While commenting on a video of Shaheen dismissing Babar Azam during Sunday’s PSL match between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi, Steyn admired the bend and flick in Shaheen’s wrist and advised young pacers to learn from him.
“Shaheen’s wrist is amazing. The bend & flick he has is so special and an area where many young fast bowlers could look to find their extra yard of pace they searching for,” Steyn tweeted.
“Few drills one could try, but if you’re over 25 I’m sorry but it may already be too late. Still worth a try,” he added.
In the match, Shaheen broke the bat of Mohammad Haris in the very first ball of the second innings. Then in the very next delivery, Haris was dismissed with a searing yorker for a duck.
Shaheen picked up a five-wicket haul to help his team register a 40 run-win over Zalmi.
