During the eleventh match of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021, Lahore Qalandars pacer Shaheen Afridi castled Karachi Kings batsman and his Pakistan captain Babar Azam with an absolute jaffa.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the third over when Azam in an attempt to play an incoming delivery towards the leg side completely missed the line of the ball and got clean bowled. Afridi, who has dismissed several batsmen in such a manner, added another scalp to his name.
Enjoying Shaheen as ever… 👏 #HBLPSL6

Azam had to depart, after contributing just 5 runs to his team’s total.
