New Delhi: Pakistan cricket team is currently playing Asia Cup 2022 without their star bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi and many have said that this can affect them negatively.
PCB announced Mohammad Hasnain as the replacement of the pacer but Mohammad Rizwan feels that there is no one who can replace him.
No one can fill Shaheen Afridi’s shoes – Mohammad Rizwan
Though, the team is performing well in the tournament with the likes of Naseem Shah and Shahnawaz Dahani but Rizwan says that no one can fill the shoes of Afridi.
I’ve talked to the bowlers before. I will be very honest here, no bowler from this group can replace Shaheen. This is my honest answer. The way he (Shaheen) has performed in the past 1-2 years, no bowler can come into the side and fill his shoes,” said the Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Rizwan said during a post-match press conference.
“But, we can get another Shaheen and this is an opportunity for our other fast bowlers. The way Naseem and Dahani have performed.. and Haris is already a part of the side, so we are hopeful,” he concluded.
Pakistan is set to fight against India in Super 4 stage of the tournament.
