Shahid Afridi Bags Unwanted Record, Bowls Most Expensive Spell in History of PSL on Return to T20 League
PSL: Afridi bagged an unwanted record to his name as he bowled the most expensive spell in the history of PSL.
Karachi: Shahid Afridi is one of the most popular cricketers to have represented Pakistan. At the age of 46, he made a comeback to the game as he featured in a PSL game for Quetta Gladiators on Thursday. The game turned out to be disastrous from his point of view as he was clobbered to all parts of the ground in his four overs spell in which he conceded 67 runs and picked up a solitary wicket as United won the game by 43 runs.
Unfortunately, Afridi bagged an unwanted record to his name as he bowled the most expensive spell in the history of PSL. He bowled the 19th over where Babar Azam hit him for three sixes of the first four balls to unsettle him. Eventually, he got Babar of the penultimate ball of the over.

It was a bad day in the office for the veteran as he did not come good with the bat as well. All he could muster was four runs off eight balls.
“I am excited to join Quetta Gladiators, a side that has had a roller-coaster ride in the past few events despite winning the title in 2019. In my final PSL event, it will be my dream and wish to sign off with another PSL trophy after tasting success with Peshawar Zalmi in 2017. PSL is an event that encourages and inspires a player to give his very best. I will use the same motivation to help my team and put up performances that can help us achieve our event objectives,” he had said before the start of the PSL 2022 edition.
