Shahid Afridi was scared to bowl to this Indian batsman

Despite growing age, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has managed to keep himself fit to play the competitive cricket. Afridi, 38, turned out to be a worst nightmare for the bowlers courtesy of his fierce striking ability that sees the ball in the stands. The man from Khyber amassed more than 11 thousand runs in International cricket in 508 innings of 524 matches and sits at top of the list of “Most sixes in a career” with 476 home runs.

The legendary all-rounder played his last International match in May 2018 but will continue to entertain the cricket fans with his participation in various T20 leagues of the world.

Besides being a great striker of the cricket ball, Afridi was more than a handy leg-spinner. He picked 541 wickets for Pakistan in all three formats. However, there was one batsman whom he was scared to bowl and recently revealed his name.

“I wasn’t scared of anyone when I played cricket but the one player who it was difficult to bowl to was Virender Sehwag” Afridi was quoted as saying by Pak Passion.

Sehwag was not afraid to take on any bowler of the world at any time of his career and Afridi surely had to face the heat when he bowled to “Nawab of Najafgarh”.

Afridi will next feature in the upcoming Afghanistan Premier League (APL), representing the Paktia Panthers franchise. While, Virender Sehwag has sidelined himself from cricket after his retirement and will be busy with the commentary stints.
