County Championship: Shaheen Afridi threw a great Yorker.© Twitter
Pakistan international Shaheen Shah Afridi’s wicket from Aaron Beard in the on-going County Championship match against Sussex was a joy to watch. The fast bowler uprooted two stumps from Sussex batter Beard with a nearly unplayable yorker, something the bowler reveled in as he erupted into his signature feast. The official County Championship handle posted the clip on Instagram showing how accurate the Yorker was as he sent the stumps flying into the air. The caption read: “What a delivery from @ishaheenafridi10.”
Here’s a look at the video:
Afridi seems to be getting better with every outing in England’s County cricket.
After his incredible duels with Marnus Labuschagne earlier in the competition, Shaheen continued his fine form with the ball, taking three wickets in the first innings at The 1st Central County Ground in Hove on Thursday.
His first wicket was also a gem of a pitch that helped him take the wicket from Tom Haines with a stunning out-swinger for 17 runs.
The Middlesex team’s official contact had called it an “absolute beauty” while sharing the video.
