On the other hand, Shahnawaz Dhani made a remarkable debut as a player of Multan Sultans. In his first match, the bowler successfully achieved 2 wickets for 20 in three overs. Dhani had made his first-class debut on Nover 25, 2019 for Sindh. The right-arm bowler seems to be having a promising career!
He said in an interview that taking the wicket of Azam is my dream, “I have not dismissed him yet,” he added.
Shahnawaz said, “I want to form a bowling partnership with Shaheen Shah Afridi for Pakistan”.
He added, “I used to follow Shane Bond, he was a very fast bowler and I loved his action”.
