The former all-rounder heaped massive praise on the left-arm pacer. “to open the bowling at the other end, we’ll go with another great opening bowler, Shaheen Shah Afridi from Pakistan, who is a tremendous left-arm fast bowler,” Waugh said.
“He’s a wicket-taker. He sort of lifts the team. He’s a guy that other players follow. He is a left-arm so that’s another point of different. He can swing the ball back into the right. Hander, he’s quick as well, so I’ve got him number two,” he added.

1, Jasprit Bumrah – India
2, Shaheen Shah Afridi – Pakistan
