Watch: Shaheen ‘Boom Boom’ Afridi slog sweeps four sixes off one over in fierce, in-vain T20 Blast cameo
Watch: Nottinghamshire’s Shaheen Afridi shone with the bat against Worcestershire in a T20 Blast clash on Friday (June 3), hitting Michael Bracewell for four sixes in an over to inject life into what was eventually a one-sided clash.
Shaheen conceded 1-45 with the ball in the first innings, as Worcestershire piled on a mammoth 226-5 on the board. In reply, Nottinghamshire got off to an aggressive start, making 58 in 4.5 overs, but were soon reduced to 126-7 in the 14th over, when Shaheen walked out to bat.
He got going with a four on just the second ball that he faced, before taking on New Zealand’s Bracewell in the 16th over. The first ball of the over was dispatched for a maximum over mid-wicket; the Pakistan quick proceeded to hit three more sixes, including smashing the last ball straight down the ground.
