New Delhi: Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is known for his dangerous bowling and in a recent incident he has sent a batter in hospital. His in-swing yorker was so furious that it landed Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the nearby hospital.

Afridi, who had injured himself while playing in Sri Lanka, was ruled out of the Asia Cup earlier. Moreover, he was also ruled out of the home series against England.

Nonetheless, playing his first match in competitive cricket, Afridi came in Pakistan’s second warm-up match which was played against Afghanistan. He managed to dismiss both the Afghanistan openers with his effective deliveries, one among which was a toe-crushing yorker to Gurbaz.

Shaheen completed his recovery just in time after enduring a knee injury during Pakistan’s first Test against Sri Lanka earlier this year in Galle. The speedster hasn’t played a competitive game since then and has been under rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, Zaman recovered from a hairline fracture on his right thumb and replaced leg-spinner Usman Qadir, who was ruled out of the World Cup squad due to injury.
