Shaheen was smacked by Irishmen in 2nd T20I [x.com]

Experienced speedster Shaheen Afridi had a poor outing with the ball in his side’s second T20I against Ireland in Dublin. Despite picking up three wickets, Shaheen was hammered for 49 runs in his four-over spell. 

Shaheen, who earlier took the prized scalps of Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie, was targeted by Lorcan Tucker and Curtis Campher, who ensured a fitting finish for the home team. 

The swashbuckling batters smacked Shaheen for two fours and as many sixes, collecting 21 runs off his third over. 

The incident occurred during the 15th over of Ireland’s innings when Campher and Tucker were stabilising things following Harry Tector’s departure. 

As soon as Shaheen came to bowl the third over of his spell, Campher welcomed him with a massive six over the deep mid wicket stand. 

After playing a dot ball, the Irish allrounder once again clobbered the ace pacer for a boundary and a maximum to stun him in front of a packed crowd. 

As if it wasn’t enough, Tucker flicked the final ball for a boundary, helping Ireland collect 21 runs off the over. 

Riding on Tucker’s scintillating fifty, Ireland posted a mammoth 193-run total on the board. In response, Pakistan have got off to a disastrous start, losing Saim Ayub in the very first over.
