Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi invited some negative limelight to his name during the second T20I against Bangladesh on Saturday.

After being hit for a six, Afridi intentionally threw the ball back at Bangladesh batter Afif Hossain.

The incident took place after the second delivery of the third over, which was hit for a maximum by Hossain. On the following delivery, when the young Bangladeshi defended the ball back to the bowler, Afridi – who was perhaps still smarting the six he got smacked on the previous ball – turned around and threw the ball at the batter, hitting Hossain on the ankle.

To his credit, Afridi immediately apologised for his mistake. Pakistan captain Babar Azam also rushed in to check on Hossain after the latter fell to the ground because of the impact of the powerful throw.

After receiving treatment from his team’s physio, Hossain was declared fit to continue batting. The 22-year-old scored 20 runs off 21 balls before being dismissed by leg-spinner Shadab Khan.

Here’s the video:

The hosts could score just 108 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in their stipulated overs, with Afridi and Shadad picking a couple of wickets each for the visitors.

Pakistan, in reply, gunned down the target in 18.1 overs, with Fakhar Zaman remaining not out on 57 off 51 balls with the help of 2 fours and three sixes. Mohammad Rizwan also contributed with 39 while captain Babar (1) suffered a rare failure.

“Team effort, happy with the way the boys carried forward the momentum. We bowled well in the middle overs, finished it off well,” said the Pakistan skipper after taking an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
