Shaheen Afridi is a Paksitani fast bowler who made his debut in April 2018. In such a short time the bowler has been able to set his mark on the cricket grounds and make place in people’s heart. In recent ODI rankings, Shaheen Afridi has been ranked at 3rd place. His career best match was against West indies this year in 2022.
Muhammad hasnain who has replaced Shaheen Afridi is also a good player. He debuted in 2018. He ia s right armed fast bowler.
There has been a wave of disappointment among the cricket fans on the news of Shaheen Afridi not being able to play. Though, fans were concerned about his knee injury but they were still hopeful that he might come around during the Asia Cup 2022. But since Shaheen Afridi has been replaced by Muhammad Husnain all hopes of people turned into dismay.
Cricket experts and fans have been criticizing the board decisions. According to them, the top players of Pakistani team like Shaheen Afridi and Babar Azam have been played by the board like a machine. Asia cup 2022 should have been taken into consideration and player’s health should have been taken into account. But the board had been negligent towards taking precautionary measures.
This resulted into Shaheen Afridi’s injury. He suffered from right knee disalignement during matches in June. It seems reasonable that top players should have been given rest before the Asia cup 2022 and other players should have been sent to play matches with Sri Lanka in Galle. This would have been made boosted teh young players confidence with appropriate exposure before tha big matches along with appropriate rest for top players.
When Shaheen afridi was replaced by Muhammad Husnain for sometime Muhmmad Amir was trending on twitter by fans to cover up Shaheen Afirdi’s spot. Though, Muhmmad amir had already announced his retirenment in 2020 but people were excited about the Pak India match and wanted to put forward the best foot.
After announcement of Muhammad Hasnain replacing Shaheen Afridi people are hopeful about his performance in the Asia cup matches and are expecting a good run.
