Fan Support In England Leaves Shaheen Afridi Very Happy
While explaining how he feels after receiving massive support from fans in England, Shaheen said, “It really feels good to see so many fans around. These are our own people who are supporting me regardless of where I play. So, they come out to support me whether I’m batting, bowling or fielding. I’m extremely grateful.
“In all our matches especially at Trent Bridge Nottingham, the home ground of my team Outlaws, the Pakistani community have come out in great numbers and it really feels good. Even today in Birmingham I had good fan support. They appreciated my performance and kept backing me up.
“Team has really played well, but the credit should go to our batters. The pitches here are playing well. In many games 200 plus runs have been scored. So batters performed well and provided us with enough cushion to ball aggressively. In doing so we got the wickets and the spinners played a good role too.”
