And, the next match he has to play against South Africa in Sydney, which is riding on the winning chariot so far in the tournament. Pakistan will have to beat South Africa to keep its hopes alive.

Has the speed of Shaheen Shah Afridi’s balls already slowed down?
Questions arose about the speed of the balls because so far in the T20 World Cup 2022, their average speed has been estimated at 135-140 kph only. Whereas, they have the ability to consistently throw above 140-145 kph. Now you will ask who raised these questions? So such questions have been raised by the legendary cricketers of Pakistan. Veterans like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Malik have said in one voice that this is not the Shaheen who was before the injury because their speed has been braked.

Now know what Shaheen Shah Afridi said on this. He clearly said that, “He is as he was before the injury. And, the speed of his balls has not stopped either. It is not easy to come back after injury and the kind of injury I have recovered from, I would like no one else to have it. Only those who have gone through such situations can make an accurate assessment about the situations I have overcome.”
He further said, “I try to give my best in every match. And, that is possible only when you are match fit. Shaheen recalled his difficult time spent in England during the injury and said that during that time the teammate supported me completely.
