After the 19-year-old Afridi enjoyed a breakthrough World Cup campaign, Wasim Akram to hailed teenager as a future star.


The teenager recorded Pakistan's best-ever World Cup bowling figures with a scintillating spell of 6-35 win over Bangladesh at Lord's.

Afridi made his mark in a domestic match in September 2017, claiming eight wickets for just 39 runs in a Quaid-e-Azam Trophy game.

Despite that victory in their last group match, Pakistan failed to qualify for the semi-finals as they had an inferior net run-rate compared to fourth-placed New Zealand, who also had 11 points from nine matches.
