Shaheen Afridi is a better new-ball
Shaheen Afridi is a better new-ball bowler than Jasprit Bumrah, said Aaqib Javed, former Pakistan pacer.

Former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed said that while Jasprit Bumrah is a better death bowler than Shaheen Afridi, the Pakistani fast bowler lured the Indian with the new ball.

Former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed said that Shaheen Afridi is a better bowler than Jasprit Bumrah with the new ball. Javed said, while Bumrah of India is a better fast bowler than Shaheen of Pakistan, both pacers are “just as good” at bowling with the new ball before Shaheen is a better bowler than his Indian counterpart. Left-arm fast bowler Shaheen has played 15 Tests, 25 ODIs, and 23 T20s for Pakistan since his international debut in 2018. Bumrah, who played for India for the first time in 2016, has played 19 Tests, 67 ODIs, and 50 T20s.

Javed told the Cricket Pakistan channel on YouTube, “Bumrah is a great bowler. He can bowl at any stage of the match. I think he is slightly ahead of Shaheen in terms of death bowling.”

“I think they are equally good with the new ball, but Shaheen can improve his death bowling,” he said. “In fact, Shaheen is a better bowler than Bumrah with the new ball.”

While Afridi scored 48 Test wickets, 51 ODI wickets, and 25 T20I scallops, Bumrah took 83 wickets in Tests, 108 in ODIs, and 59 in T20s.

Javed had sparked a debate earlier this week when he said that India captain Virat Kohli could learn to improve batting technique from Pakistan limited-overs captain Babar Azam.

“Virat Kohli has a better range of shots than Babar Azam, but he also has an area of ​​weakness,” Javed had said.

“If the ball swings, he tries to get stuck around the off stump against James Anderson in England.

He said, “When you look at Babur, you don’t see any vulnerable area. Just like Sachin Tendulkar also had no weak area. Babur is technically safer and healthier,” he said.
