Comilla Victorians all-rounder Shahid Afridi got out on an absurd fashion in their clash against Chittagong Vikings at the Shere Bangla Stadium, Dhaka on January 13 (Sunday). As Afridi’s dismissal, the Victorians also went down by four wickets on Sunday’s clash.
Meanwhile, batting first Comilla Victorians posted 184 runs for the loss of five wickets in their quota of 20 overs. After a woeful start, the Victorians came back stronger with their middle-order chipping with healthy contributions. However, the main onslaught came from Sri Lanka all-rounder Thisara Perera who smacked a 26-ball 74 including eight sixes and three boundaries.
En-route their innings, Afridi got out hit wicket off the bowling of Khaled Ahmed as he lost control while trying to play a bouncer. Shahid Afridi went on the backfoot trying to pull the ball, and his shoes ended up crashing on the stumps. Meanwhile, as from the footages, Afridi was not aware of the same. The former Pakistan all-rounder managed to score only two runs from four deliveries before getting out.
