Afridi gives tips to Shadab to overcome bowling woes

27 May, 2024 17:45

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has offered a piece of advice to struggling all-rounder Shadab Khan to overcome his bowling woes.

During the second T20I, Shadab conceded 55 runs in his four overs without taking any wicket — his worst bowling figure in T20Is.

Following that, Afridi called Shadab to boost his confidence.

“I called yesterday because I know he is going through a difficult time so I always try to help and motivate players who are having a hard time,” he told in an interview. “Similarly, I talked with Shadab about what he is doing wrong and I hope that if he does [what he discussed] in training sessions, you will see the difference.”

He was then asked if there’s some mental block with Shadab to which he said: “Is there any leg-spin coach with the team? Saeed Ajmal was there but he was an off-spinner. Ajmal should be asked if he guided Shadab and why is he not doing what he was told.

“I know there must be tremendous pressure on Shadab but big players know how to pull themselves out of such situations. I shared with him one to two problems I found with his bowling and I’m hoping that he will work on those things,” the former skipper concluded.
