Shaheen Shah Afridi has developed a habit of giving Pakistan early breakthroughs, especially in the limited-overs formats.
In the second ODI against West Indies, the left-arm pacer delivered in the very first over of the visitors' chase as he dismissed the in-form Shai Hope for just four runs. Shaheen bowled five in-swingers on the trot to Hope, who had scored a brilliant century in the first ODI, and the opener even flicked one away for a boundary.
But then, the pacer moved the final delivery away from Hope and the opener could only give the cover fielder a simple catch as he was caught at the crease without any foot movement.
The early wicket helped set up a 120-run win for Pakistan, that saw them take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
Spinner Mohammad Nawaz was the star with the ball, as he ran through the West Indies lineup with figures of 4/19.
He got the wickets of Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran as West Indies were bowled out for 155 in just 32.2 overs.
