One of the emerging young talents of Pakistan cricket, Shahe Shah made his international debut in April 2018 in a T20 international against the West Indies in Karachi. He made his ODI and Test debut the same year as part of Pakistan's fast bowling unit.
In his 22 T20Is, Shaheen Afridi has taken 24 wickets, while he has also taken 45 wickets in 21 ODIs. He has also played 15 Tests for Pakistan and has 48 wickets in his belt.
Both Shaheen and Shahid Afridi were last seen in action in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021, which was postponed after several positive cases of coronovirus.
Before PSL 2021 was postponed, Shaheen was in superb form for his Lahore Qalandars and took nine wickets in just four matches.
On the other hand, Shahid Afridi made a great outing for Multan Sultans in four matches, as he could not even open his account in three consecutive matches.
