Ex-Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi disclosed a discussion he had with all-rounder Shadab Khan after Shadab’s subpar showing in the second T20I against England in Birmingham last Saturday.

Shadab’s figures read 55 runs off four overs, marking his poorest performance in T20I cricket, mirroring his PSL 2021 stats against Peshawar Zalmi.

Speaking to a local news outlet, Afridi mentioned his post-match conversation with Shadab, where he aimed to boost his morale and pointed out his bowling errors.

“I need Shadab to deliver with the ball. Whenever he has performed with the ball, Pakistan have won. I have watched all of his matches in the past. We had a detailed chat yesterday, I asked him who is coaching him or if there is something he is not doing, how are you making such mistakes is there no one to tell you?” Afridi commented.

“I called yesterday because I know he is going through a difficult time so I always try to help and motivate players who are having a hard time. Similarly, I talked with Shadab about what he is doing wrong and I hope that if he does [what he discussed] in training sessions, you will see the difference.”

When questioned about a possible mental hurdle for Shadab, Afridi responded, “Is there any leg-spin coach with the team? Saeed Ajmal was there but he was an off-spinner. Ajmal should be asked if he guided Shadab and why is he not doing what he was told.

“I know there must be tremendous pressure on Shadab but big players know how to pull themselves out of such situations. I shared with him one to two problems I found with his bowling and I’m hoping that he will work on those things.”
