On Friday, June 30, Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi made a remarkable achievement in a T20 cricket match. Playing for Nottinghamshire against Warwickshire in the T20 Vitality Blast, the 23-year-old bowler took four wickets in the very first over.
Shaheen delivered an exceptional opening over by getting four batsmen out. He started by dismissing Alex Davies with a well-placed delivery, followed by Chris Benjamin being bowled out, and Dan Mousley getting caught by Olly Stone. Shaheen ended his fantastic over by bowling out Ed Barnard, completing his four-wicket haul.
Despite Shaheen’s outstanding performance, Nottinghamshire ended up losing the match to Warwickshire by two wickets. Nevertheless, Shaheen’s achievement of taking four wickets in the first over will be remembered as a significant milestone in T20 cricket history.
