Left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi inquired after the health of Bangladeshi cricketer Afif Hossain post-match.
PCB released a video in which Afridi went up to Afif and both shook hands and hugged too.
Afridi found himself in a bit of a tangle during Pakistan’s second T20I against the Mahmudullah-led Bangladesh on Saturdayat the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
The speedster, inadvertently, ‘injured’ left-handed batter Afif Hossain Dhrubo while bowling his second over after the Tigers opted to bat first.
Afif came to bat in the third over after Mohammad Wasim Jr. accounted for opener Mohammad Naim’s wicket.
The batter started his knock in an audacious manner, hitting Afridi for a massive six.
Afridi bowled a half-volley and Afif flicked the ball over the leg side boundary without much fuss. It was in the very next ball when Shaheen lost his cool and composure to a large extent.
