A perfect leg spinning all-rounder who has got more variations than a traditional spinner including the ability to clock 120+ kmph and can quickly complete his quota of 10 overs without leaking much. His game finishing antiques are renowned and have earned him the nickname ‘Boom Boom’. Afridi, single-handedly could turn the course of a match in Pakistan’s favor. With the flamboyance Afridi carries in his game, his all-round performance could give Pakistan it’s 2nd World Cup.
One of the 1992 World Cup Semi-Finals was memorable for a young talent hitting the ball to all the corners of the park in the Semi-Final. It was Inzamam Ul Haq. Similar to Inzamam, Ahmed Shehzad will play his first World Cup Down Under. Recognized for his sweetly timed cover drives and decent footwork, Shehzad will be looked upon as the mainstay of the Pakistan batting. A team filled with stroke-makers will look to play around Shehzad when it comes to putting up/ chasing big totals.
