The Indian team led by Virat Kohli believed that everyone would win the recent T20 Cricket World Cup. However, the Indian team was left disappointed after a series of defeats in the preliminary round. If the Pakistan team lost the first match of the T20 World Cup by 10 wickets, it was a rare achievement in this match.
For the first time in the history of the ICC World Cup, the Indian team lost to Pakistan. What turned out to be crucial in this one win was the performance of Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi. Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul and Virat Kohli were dropped.
Meanwhile, Shaheen Afridi is now revealing some secret plans behind this performance. The batsman, who bowled Rahul and Rohit in the first two overs of Newball, said it was his best performance of 2021. “2021 was the best year for me. I have taken 5 wickets in Test cricket but I will never forget this match and the win against India, ”said Shaheen Afridi.
“I got a lot of swing off the pitch that day. So I was very sure that Rohit would be able to take the wicket. But it was Rahul’s wicket that shocked me. I never expected that wicket. That ball does not swing much but I was able to pitch the ball on the correct spot.
That wicket was a big surprise. I believe I can do the same in 2022, ”said Shaheen Afridi.
