After dismissing Marnus Labuschagne on 90 in the first test, Shaheen Afridi celebrated in style.
Shaheen Afridi, Pakistan’s great cricketer, rattled Australia just when his skipper needed it most; demonstrating once again the fast bowler’s magnificent purple patch. The match continued after noon, despite the fact that the start of Day 4 was delayed owing to rain, which resulted in the loss of the first session entirely. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne, Australia’s batters, returned to the middle with Australia on 271/2, picking up where they left off at stumps on Day 3. Despite the fact that Pakistan’s bowlers were highly penetrative with the old ball, Babar Azam seized the opportunity to take the new ball after the 80th over and handed it to Shahid Afridi.
Afridi bowled the opening over with the new ball at a rather fast pace against Labuschagne; who failed to score a single run.
Labuschagne gathered five runs in the second over with the new red cherry, which appeared to be a bit off.
However, it was Afridi’s penultimate delivery of the critical third over with the new ball that helped him get Labuschagne out for 90 runs.

Shaheen emitted into his standard celebration of amplifying both arms towards the supporters; and getting a charge out of the cheers without further ado after the wicket.
