Boom Boom Afridi predicted that Shadab can play an important role in the upcoming World Cup slated to kick off from May 30 in England and Wales.
Shadab played a key role in Pakistan’s only win in the three-match T20 series. He scored a 22 run cameo studded with three massive sixes to Phehlukwayo in the last over and took two important wickets including the in-form David Miller.
Resultantly, Pakistan beat South Africa by 27 runs and he received the man of the match award for this performance.
