Absolutely Lethal – Dinesh Karthik compares Shaheen Afridi to Mitchell Starc

Shaheen Shah Afridi has been sensational for Pakistan in the ongoing T20 World Cup. While he took three key wickets against India, he bowled exceptionally well against the Kiwis. Dinesh Karthik, the Indian wicket-keeper batter, has praised the Pakistan pacer and compared him to Mitchell Starc.

He took to Twitter to speak about the performance of the Pakistan fast bowler. “Shaheen Shah Afridi’s bowling is very similar to what Mitchell Starc bowled in the 2015 world cup.

Bowls full and sharp at the start, gets wickets and bowls gun Yorkers at the death. ABSOLUTELY LETHAL,” he wrote.

While Pakistan have defeated India and New Zealand in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup, Australia thumped South Africa in their opening fixture. Pakistan are currently leading the points table in their group with two wins from two matches.
