The 17-year old Shaheen Afridi produced one of the most lethal spells ever bowled in T20 cricket.

Meanwhile, Afridi returned with 5 for four in 3.4 overs against Multan Sultans to end Lahore Qalandars losing streak.

League topper Multan Sultans got off to a perfect start with Kumar Sangakkara batting brilliantly. Meanwhile, the Sultans were at 92 for two in 12.5 overs when their batting collapse started.

Afridi rattled the Sultans middle-order, as they got out at 114 with Afridi finishing with 5 for four.

In reply, it was a cake walk for the Qalandars. Some useful contributions from skipper Bendon McCullum and Gulraiz Sadaf saw them taste theirĀ first victory in this edition.

Afridi’s magical spell:

The tall and lanky left-handed pacer announced his arrival with an eight-wicket haul on his first-class debut in a domestic match in Pakistan.

Further, he made a strong case for himself in the ICC U19 World Cup bowling some decent line and length.

Afridi took five wickets, giving away just four runs, as Multan Sultans suffered a dramatic batting collapse. Also, Afridi returned with a triple wickets maiden. Further, he bowled 18 dots out of the 22 deliveries he bowled.

Further, it puts Afridi on the fourth place in the list of most economical T20 five-fors. Meanwhile, the list is headed by Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath for his figure of 5 for three against New Zealand.
