This T20 world cup was indeed a nightmare for Indian cricket when it was hammered by Pakistan in its very first match. Even though the records are still at the upper hand for India, the defeat against Pakistan in the world cup didn’t go well with some fans. Shaheen Afridi was the wrecker-in-chief as Pakistan hammered India by 10 wickets in their opening T20 World Cup campaign. The left-arm pacer dismissed the ‘big three’ KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to rattle the Indian top-order. A recent video of his went viral where he was seen mimicking the dismissals of Indian top order.
Pakistan’s Defeat Against Australia Brings This Video Once Again
While the videos of Afridi dismissing Rahul, Rohit and Kohli have entertained fans on social media a number of times since the match took place, a new video has now surfaced where the Pakistani pacer could be seen enacting the manner in which the trio lost their wickets. Shaheen has been one of the finest performers in T20 World Cup 2021. His exploits with the new ball have tormented many batsmen in the tournament so far. In one of Pakistan’s matches in the T20 World Cup, when Afridi was fielding near the boundary rope, a section of fans asked him to enact the dismissal of Rahul, Rohit, and Kohli.

One after the other, Shaheen entertained the fans by acting out the manner in which he had dismissed the three Indian batters.Copying the dismissal of Rohit Sharma, who was the first to be dismissed by Shaheen, the Pakistani speedster acted out the fake LBW-dismissal that had sent the Indian opener packing. The crowd then started to chant KL Rahul’s name who was clean bowled by Afridi. The left-arm seamer then enacted the opening batsman’s dismissal to further please his fans.
The reactions from fans have been mixed, with a number of cricket lovers expressing their disappointment at the fact that Afridi mocked the Indian batters just to entertain some fans. Let’s look into this as a spirit of the game and no doubt that Pakistan outplayed India in that game!
