Shane Watson named Shahid Afridi in ‘Top 5 T20 Bowlers of All Time’


Karachi: Australian all-rounder Shan Watson praised Pakistan’s former international cricketer Shahid Khan Afridi and named him in ‘Top 5 T20 Bowlers of All Time’. 

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Watson said who wouldn’t highly rate Afridi for his bowling as the right-arm leggie took 339 wickets in 317 T20s at an average of 22.26.

“He is a perfect T20 bowler who takes wicket at crucial moments,” said Watson. “His quality is that he doesn’t concede many runs and is skilful in variety. You always want such bowler in your team anytime,” he added.

Besides, Watson included Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, India’s Jasprit Bumrah, DJ Bravo and Sunil Narine both from West Indies in his ‘Top 5 T20 Bowlers of All Time’.
