Shaheen Shah Afridi’s early demise
Pakistan bowler Shaheed Shah Afridi caused early havoc in the semi-final against New Zealand with a dominant knock in the first over of the game. Shaheen Afridi’s pace of the ball confused New Zealand batsman Finn Allen and he attempted a shot but went straight to the stumps.
PAKvsNZ – New Zealand won the toss, elected to bat first
After winning the toss, Kane Williamson had announced that he will choose to bat first and play with the same team. “We will have a bat. A used surface. We have the same team. It is important that we assess the changing conditions quickly. We will focus on this game.”
However, their decision is not very fruitful. Finn Allen went for 4 runs and Devon Conway is back for 21 runs.
