Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi became a huge sensation in his country after he dismissed India’s opening duo KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, before scalping the wicket of captain Virat Kohli in the opening match of World T20 for the sides.
That’s understandable, too. These are some of the best batters in the scene, if not the best, and the appreciation is warranted.
But now, he is trolling us and thoda zyaada ho raha hai. In a video that is now going viral, Afridi can be seen re-enacting Rohi, Rahul and Virat’s shot which got them dismissed as fans chanted their names from the stands.
fans chanted KL and Kohli's name as well. Gazab bezatti hai yaar 😑— Scorpion_Virat (check pinned) (@crickohli18_) November 8, 2021
Here’s how fans of both sides reacted to the video.
