Shaheen Shah Afridi set an example for Pakistan in the World Cup. He surpassed his father-in-law Shahid Afridi by taking 3 wickets against Bangladesh. Along with that, another former cricketer of Pakistan, Shoaib Akhtar has also been overtaken by Shaheen.
Shaheen dismissed Bangladesh’s Tanjid Hasan, Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Mahmudullah. As a result, he has 16 wickets in 7 matches in the current World Cup. He tops the list of wickets in this competition. Shaheen took 32 wickets for Pakistan in the World Cup. Father-in-law Afridi’s wicket count was 30. Akhtar also took 30 wickets for Pakistan in the World Cup. Shaheen beat both of them on Tuesday.

Shaheen is now number four in the list of wickets for Pakistan in the World Cup. Wasim Akram tops the list. The former Pakistan captain has taken 55 wickets in the World Cup. Wahab Riaz has 35 wickets at the second position. Imran Khan is in third place. Pakistan’s only World Cup winning captain has taken 34 wickets.
Even if Pakistan does not make it to the semi-finals of the current World Cup, Shaheen will play at least two more matches after that. In that case, this time he can beat Imran and Wahab to the second place. But it will still take a long time for Shaheen to topple Akram.
