Shaheen Shah Afridi Praises Mohammad Rizwan

The pacer called him the "Bradman of T20 Cricket."

Pakistan's ace pacer, Shaheen Shah Afridi, showered massive praise on wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, hailing him as the "Bradman of T20 cricket."

Rizwan achieved a significant milestone during Pakistan's seven-wicket victory over New Zealand in the second T20I on Saturday, surpassing Babar Azam and Virat Kohli to become the fastest player to reach 3,000 runs in T20Is.

Previously, Kohli and Azam held the joint-fastest record, each taking 81 innings, followed by Australia's Aaron Finch with 98 innings. However, Rizwan achieved this feat in just 79 innings, propelled by his match-winning 45-run knock against the Blackcaps.

Shaheen Afridi took to his X-account (formerly Twitter) and congratulated him on reaching this milestone.

The five-match series between Pakistan and New Zealand is square at 1-1. 

  • April 25: 4th T20I in Lahore
  • April 27: 5th T20I in Lahore
