Twitter reacts as Shaheen Afridi impresses in South Africa
Pakistan’s young pacer Shaheen Afridi has already made his mark at the International stage with a stunning performance against a tough South African line-up at their own backyard.
With Pakistan all-out for 181, the green team needed extraordinary bowling spells to counter the hosts too and Shaheen Afridi, with help of Muhammad Amir and Hasan Ali did exactly that.
That three took all 10 wickets and bowled Africa out for 223. Shaheen Afridi got 4 wickets for 64.
Pakistan only trailed by 42 runs at the end of the first innings but had it not been for Shaheen Shah Afridi and his counterparts, it could have been much worse.
The match now hangs in the balance and any of the two teams can win it.
Here is what social media has to say about Pakistan’s Shaheen
Won’t disagree to that

Even the legend himself, Shoaib Akhtar, seems pretty impressed
Day 2 of #PakistanVsSouthAfrica: All our quickies utilized the conditions well and limited SA to 223. Smart & intelligent batting can turn the game into our favor. Go for it guys.
Well done @iamamirofficial & @RealHa55an. Young lad Shaheen Afridi also bowled well.
