Pakistan pace spearhead Shaheen Afridi is known for his ability to surprise the batsmen with inswinging yorkers. The left-armer took out Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the opening over of their T20 World Cup warm-up match at the Gabba in Brisbane on Wednesday.
Gurbaz was trapped in front of the wicket for a golden duck. He was hit on the left boot and had to carried off by a substitute fielder. As per reports, Gurbaz was rushed to a nearby hospital for scans on his left foot.
Afghanistan made 154/6 in 20 overs. Pakistan were 19/0 in 2.2 overs when rain ended play.
Afridi picked up 2/29 from his four overs. His form augurs well for Pakistan ahead of the opening Super 12 match against India at the MCG on Sunday.
