Pakistan vs Canada: Shaheen Afridi’s unwanted record in the match against Canada, read what happened?

The fight for survival continues for Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. The remaining two matches have to be won. Due to this, the Pakistani team is already in tension. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s star bowler Shaheen Afridi has lost his record in the match against Canada. In this match, Babar Azam trusted Shaheen and handed over the first over to him. An early wicket was expected from him. But he was disappointed. The Canadian batsmen did something that Shaheen Afridi’s record does not want. Aaron Johnson was batting for Canada. He hit fours on the first two balls.

Shaheen Afridi was bowled on a boundary and an unwanted record was created. Shaheen Afridi became the first bowler to hit two boundaries in the first innings in T20 World Cup cricket history. It is time for a weak team like Canada to present such a face.

The special thing is that after two consecutive fours, Pakistan captain Babar Azam also got angry. He immediately said harsh words to Shaheen Afridi. He also learned from this warning where to actually throw the ball. Shaheen Afridi bowled 4 overs and conceded 21 runs. Also managed to take just one wicket. Shaheen Afridi is one of the best bowlers in the world. He has played a total of 68 international matches in his T20 cricket career. He has taken 92 wickets at an average of 20.81 and an economy rate of 7.73. Meanwhile, Canada has scored 106 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in 20 overs and is challenging 107 runs for victory.
