Srinagar: The first T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand was abondoned due to rain with only two balls bowled but that was enough for Shaheen Afridi to break another T20I record.

In the first T20I vs New Zealand, Shaheen Afridi shattered Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s record of most first-over wickets in T20 cricket.

Afridi achieved the milestone when he cleaned up Tim Robinson with a perfectly crafted in-swinger.

With that Afridi’s tally of first-over wickets rose to 47. He is now closely followed by India’s Kumar (46), compatriot Mohammad Amir (43) and England’s David Willey, who has 42 wickets.

The first T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand was called off due to persistent rain here.

Only a two-ball action was possible at the picturesque Pindi Cricket Stadium as the rain returned after Shaheen Shah Afridi’s early wicket.
