Watson said that Shahid Afridi is the perfect T20 bowler. The former Aussie all-rounder also termed Boom Boom Afridi as an incredibly dynamic batsman.
He added that the Pakistani all-rounder isn’t just a wicket taker but he is also someone who doesn’t give away lots of runs and thats the kind of bowler anyone would want.
According to Shane Watson, Afridi’s ability to take wickets in the middle overs is really important in Twenty20 cricket. Talking about facing him, Watto said that with Afridi’s abilities with the ball , it was never an easy task to bat against him.
