Mohammad ‘Bradman’: Trolls have a field day after Shaheen Afridi’s senseless comment

Mohammad ‘Bradman’: Trolls have a field day after Shaheen Afridi’s senseless comment

Mohammd Rizwan recently became the fastest player to complete 3000 runs in T20 internationals (in terms of innings taken). Interestingly, he remains the player with the lowest strike rate (127) among all the players with more than 3000 T20I runs

Pakistani pacer Shaheen Afridi ignited a firestorm on social media after labeling teammate Mohammad Rizwan the “Bradman of T20 cricket.” The celebration stemmed from Rizwan reaching the 3000-run mark in T20 internationals during the second T20I against New Zealand.

Afridi took to social media to congratulate Rizwan, calling him the “Bradman of T20 cricket” and “Pakistan’s SuperMan.” However, the comparison to Sir Don Bradman, widely regarded as the greatest batsman ever, triggered a wave of criticism and ridicule.

Rizwan’s achievement is commendable. He became the second Pakistani batsman after Babar Azam to reach the 3000-run mark in T20Is. However, many fans felt Afridi’s comparison was outlandish. Bradman dominated Test cricket with an unmatched batting average, while Rizwan, known for his calculated approach, has a considerably lower strike rate in T20s.

Fans hilariously troll Shaheen Afridi for his ‘Bradman’ remark

The social media response was swift and unforgiving. Fans heavily trolled Afridi, with some questioning his cricketing knowledge.
