Rashid Khan heaps praise on Shaheen Afridi’s captaincy

Lahore Qalandars’ spin-wizard Rashid Khan heaped praise on his skipper, Shaheen Shah Afridi, for being a supportive and fighting captain while leading his side in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

In an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, Rashid Khan stated that the environment in the team under Shaheen’s leadership is quite positive. 

“Shaheen is leading the team very well, the way he is managing everything, so as a bowler and a player, you feel relaxed after having a captain like him. He guides players to perfection and doesn’t get angry whenever a player feels down,” said Rashid. 

He further elaborated that Afridi’s calmness starkly contrasted the previous year, and the team’s younger players don’t hesitate to ask anything. 

“Shaheen is playing a positive role, and one thing I like about him is that he is quite calm as compared to the previous year, and youngsters don’t hesitate to ask him anything,” he said. 

The 24-year-old also talked about the trio-pace attack of Lahore Qalandars, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Zaman Khan, and stated that they have the mindset to change the whole game upside down at any moment of the match. 

“It’s a huge pleasure to bowl with these fast bowlers. When you have bowlers like Shaheen and Haris, the pressure and responsibility automatically goes down. With our third bowler Zaman Khan, these three bowlers play a key role and take two-three wickets, so as a spinner, you feel pretty relaxed,” he said. 

“Sometimes spin bowling concedes runs, but it’s okay as Shaheen and Haris also bowl in-death overs to put some pressure on the opponent team,” he concluded.
