Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi is known all over the world for his wavy delivery and accurate yorkers. The same thing happened during the Pakistan Afghanistan practice match. Shaheen took two wickets on the strength of his quick yorker, but during this time a yorker from his hand went straight to the thumb of Afghan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz. The ball was so dangerous that after that the batsman could not even stand on his feet and he had to be taken to the hospital.

The incident happened in the first over of Afghanistan’s innings. Shaheen was delivering the fourth ball of his over. Gurbaz was about to face the first ball of his innings and here Shaheen surprised him with a yorker. Shaheen’s precise yorker quickly hit the batsman’s thumb, after which the Afghan batsman was seen groaning in pain on the middle ground. Gurbaz had suffered a serious injury due to which his teammates carried him off the field by carrying him on their backs.
Let us inform that Gurbaz has suffered a lot due to Shaheen’s yorker, due to which he has been taken straight from the field to the hospital. There are scans of Afghan batsmen. Gurbaz’s injury from the T20 World Cup can be a big setback for Afghanistan. In such a situation, Afghan fans are hoping that Gurbaz is not hurt much.
Talking about Shaheen, this left-arm bowler missed the Asia Cup due to injury, but now he has returned to the field once again after regaining his fitness. In this match, Afridi took 2 wickets for 29 runs in 4 overs. At the same time, in the first warm-up match against England, he spent only 7 runs in 2 overs.
