Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi is one of the fastest bowlers in cricket at the moment. However, he recently tried his hand at spin bowling in the practice session in Karachi ahead of the second Test against Australia.
Fans saw many similarities between his action and that of India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
A video of Afridi bowling spin was posted on Twitter, and his followers compared him with the star Indian player.
“Maybe Jadeja took the wrong flight from Mohali and landed in Karachi instead of Bengaluru,” said one of the fans. Jadeja recently scored an unbeaten 175 and took 9 wickets against Sri Lanka in the first Test.
“He is Jadeja’s missing twin. An identical run-up and bowling action,” wrote another fan.
Afridi was the only fast bowler from both sides who took more than one wicket in Rawalpindi Test. He dismissed Marnus Labuschagne and Miktchell Starc.
