Srinagar: In what has become a normal, Pakistan pace spearhead Shaheen Afridi once again claimed early wickets in the ongoing India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 class in Pallekele, Srinagar.

Shaheen Afridi stunned India by  dismissing Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma with sensational deliveries.

Shaheen first bowled out Rohit with an excellent inswing delivery in the fifth over and then silenced the crowd at Pallekele with Virat Kohli’s wickets, the biggest pick of the match. India are down to 30 runs after seven wickets with Pakistani bowlers running the show.

Earlier, Rohit won the toss for India and surprisingly elected to bat first despite the threat of rain looming over the game. There were no surprises in India’s playing squad as Rohit and Shubman Gill walked in to open an innings with the latter making his debut in the Asia Cup.

Shaheen trapped Rohit with some smart bowling in the fifth over. He produced two outswing deliveries on the inning’s first two balls and then shocked the Indian opener by getting his last delivery with a wonderful in-swing to pick the off stump. 

Shaheen produced a similar delivery to dismiss Virat in the seventh over to further shock Indian fans with Kohli’s wicket. The delivery took a thick inside edge and found the leg stump leaving Indian star in surprise.

India Playing XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan(wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj.
