Pakistani pacer Shaheen Afridi eyes on spoiling David Warner’s farewell Test series

MELBOURNE: As the much-anticipated Test series between Pakistan and Australia looms on the horizon, Shaheen Afridi, Pakistan’s fast bowler, expressed his thoughts and confidence in a media talk before their first practice session in Canberra on Sunday.

Afridi began by acknowledging the Australian opener David Warner, stating him as a “great career” who has consistently delivered stellar performances across all three formats. However, with a hint of competitive spirit, Afridi remarked, “We would wish him good luck but not hoping for a good end for David Warner in his last Test series against us.” This statement sets the tone for what promises to be a closely contested battle between the two cricketing giants.

The left-arm fast bowler emphasized the significance of the series for Pakistan, highlighting their current top spot in the World Test Championship’s points table. “This is an important series for Pakistan as we are leading the World Test Championship’s point table at the moment,” Afridi stated.

Having faced the majority of the recently announced Australian squad, Afridi expressed the team’s preparedness for the challenge that lies ahead. “We have played against the recently announced Australia’s 14-member squad, and we are all up for this challenge,” he affirmed.

“We don’t have much experience of Canberra, but I am sure this four-day match against PM XI will help us prepare well for the series against the home team starting from Perth,” he explained.
