“Trying Too Hard…”: Shahid Afridi finds fault with Shaheen Afridi’s bowling

On Sunday, Karachi Kings defeated Lahore Qalandars by a score of 67 runs in their previous Pakistan Super League game. James Vince scored 46 runs off of 36 balls for the Kings, who were asked to bat first, as they amassed a total of 185/5 in 20 overs. In addition to him, captain Imad Wasim also made 35 from 19 balls. Later, when Akif Javed claimed a four-wicket haul, Qalandars were bowled out for 118. The game ended up being a massive letdown for Qalandars captain Shaheen Afridi as the top pacer allowed 39 runs in his four-over period and only managed to take one wicket.

Former Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi has called Shaheen’s bowling into question and advised the pacer to utilise the bowling crease to his advantage.

I’ve been observing him and conversing with him as well. I think he might be bowling too far away from the stumps. During bowling, bringing the ball back in from a distance is a really big matter. It is not really simple,” Shahid reportedly said, according to Cricket Pakistan.

“He should, in my opinion, utilise the crease more effectively. He has to bowl from a few feet away from the stumps. While Wasim Akram was bowling, he frequently bowled from close to the stumps in order to pull the ball back in “Regarding his son-in-law, he commented.

Shaheen should review older films of his bowling, continued Shahid, in order to correct his errors.

He was pricey during the death overs because he was trying too hard. He continued by saying that he was trying to bowl too many Yorkers, which led to full tosses and sixes for him.
He ought to watch his recordings again and make his own corrections. The specialist advised him to remember the procedures from the time when he was succeeding.

On Tuesday at the National Stadium in Karachi, the Shaheen-led Lahore Qalandars will play host to the Quetta Galdiators.
