Pakistan’s ace speedster Shaheen Afridi once again struck with the new ball, leaving Ireland in tatters on Tuesday in the all-important third and final T20I of the series in Dublin.

As series stood at 1-1, the Babar Azam-led side had to win by hook or crook against the Ireland to save an utter humiliation in the series. And Shaheen set the platform during the third over of Ireland’s innings when Ross Adair, after playing three dots, went for a lofted shot down the ground, only to be foxed completely.

It was a full delivery by Shaheen to tempt Adair, who was beaten by the pace before stumps got rattled.

Shaheen was absolutely delighted to clean him up, as the trap was perfectly set, and he got the result he was eagerly looking for.
