Pakistan Super League 2019: 38-year-old Shahid Afridi showed that age is just a number as he took a screamer at short mid-wicket to sens Talat packing. The ball was hit hard and was dying on Afridi, the star cricketer bend low and then dived in front to get his fingers under the ball and hold onto it. It is one of the toughest things in cricket to dive in front, and that is where the legendary cricketer brought in his experience and latched onto the catch. The incident happened in the 10th over of the match of the bowling of Junaid Khan.
Here is the catch:
Meanwhile, Afridi came good with the ball as well as he scalped two wickets for 18 runs in his stipulated four overs. With the bat, Afridi finished the game with an unbeaten 8-ball 16 as Multan Sultans won the match by five wickets. The veteran still plays many leagues across the world and still happens to be an asset for any team he plays for.
