Shane Keith Warne Bowls to Shahid Afridi

Shane Keith Warne bowled to Shahid Afridi for the first time in the history of cricket and that innings by Shahid Afridi was played in Australia. Although the innings could not prolong his batting innings but he did hit him for a huge six straight over bowler’s head. Shahid Afridi hit him that huge six with single hand grip but since he had lots of power in his hand so that ball had traveled far to the boundary of Australia.

Bowling of Shane Keith Warne was on top when Pakistan cricket team toured Australia. Australia was a better side between both the teams since Australia had been playing on such tracks that had spin and bounce. On the other hand Shahid Afridi never cared about any turning or swinging track as he came up in the middle to hit every ball out of the park.

Shahid Afridi did not face leg spinner at all before he went out in the middle. He decided to go after him on the first ball. The leg spinner pitched it up under the bat wanted to entice him to go for a big hit and get caught at the deep fielder. Shahid Afridi had such power that the ball did not go in the hands of fielder instead it went all over into the stand.

Shane Keith Warne did not expect huge hit from the leg spinner cum all rounder of Pakistan cricket team but some deliveries later he was able to take his revenge. The leg spinner took his revenge when he ran Shahid Afridi out when the all rounder had confusion in the middle with the other batsman. Fielders of Australia team were really sharp and they did not let the opportunity go.

First ball of Shane Keith Warne of Australia to Shahid Afridi looked to be something that would be remembered for long time since the leg spinner of Australia never was treated with a six on the first ball despite of the fact that he was not bowling well in that particular over.
