Shahid Afridi calls Shadab Khan ‘future superstar’


Pakistan’s former flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi praised leg-spinner Shadab Khan and called him a future superstar after watching his blistering all-round performance in the third T20I against South Africa which the green shirts won by 27 runs.

Afridi through his official Twitter account appreciated Shadab for his match-winning performance in the last T20I against South Africa.

“Excellent all-round performance. you are a star and have it in you to become a great all-rounder,” said Afridi who thinks that Shadab can play a pivotal role in the upcoming World Cup slated to start from May 30 at England and Wales.

Despite losing the series Pakistan performed decently in the T20I series. However, bowlers were instrumental in the last game, restricting South Africa to 141 runs in response to their target of 169. Shadab scored 22 runs on 8 balls, which including three sixes, also took two wickets for his team.
