Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi made the headlines today after he analyzed the performances of Shaheen Afridi in the Pakistan Super League.
Shahid Afridi expressed his views after his son-in-law’s performance during the clash against Karachi Kings on Sunday’s encounter on February 19.
Shaheen Shah Afridi is the captain of the Lahore Qalandars franchise. However, his team ran through a horrible defeat at the hands of the Karachi Kings franchise.
Shaheen Afridi’s team lost the game by 67 runs. Karachi Kings batted first and posted a humongous total of 185 for the loss of five wickets in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
However, Lahore Qalandars totally lost the plot and rhythm in the run-chase. The target was too much for the Lahore Qalandars. Shaheen Afridi-led Qalandars were bowled out for 118.
Moreover, Shaheen Afridi had a bad day at the office as he conceded too many runs. He conceded 39 runs in his quota of 4 overs and took just a single wicket to his name.

Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi who watched the game between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars came up with a word of advice for his son-in-law.
Shahid Afridi advised Shaheen Afridi to bowl from close to the stumps in order to create an impact. Moreover, Shahid Afridi revealed the reason why Shaheen Afridi was way too expensive in the slog overs.
According to Shahid Afridi, Shaheen was trying too hard as he tried to bowl too many yorkers. However, that backfired him because he ended up bowling too many full tosses and got hit for sixes.

“He was trying too hard, which is why he was expensive during the death overs. He was trying to bowl too many Yorkers, which turned into full tosses and he got hit for sixes,” Shahid Afridi was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Afridi further added that Shaheen needs to watch his video clips and sorts out his woes by himself. Furthermore, he said, Shaheen needs to remember the process from the time when he was doing properly.
“He needs to watch his videos and correct his mistakes himself. He needs to remember the process from the time when he was doing well,” Afridi concluded.
