Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistan all-rounder has requested Harris Rauf to bowl slow whenever they come face to face in the future. In the ongoing PSL 2020, Haris Rauf rattled Afridi’s stumps with an unplayable in-swinging yorker. And, later on, he also folded his hands as a mark of respect towards Pakistan’s legendary all-rounder.
Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultan came face to face in eliminator 2. And, David Wiese’s all-around performance guided his team to a sensational win by a margin of 25 runs. The England all-rounder played a cameo of 48 runs in just 21 balls studded with five boundaries and three sixes. Later on, he contributed well with the ball and grabbed three wickets. He was awarded Man of The Match for his all-round performance that led his side to the final.

Afridi also congratulated Lahore Qalandars on qualifying for the finals in the 5th edition of the tournament.
Soon after the game, Afridi took to his official Twitter handle and shared a post requesting Haris Rauf to bowl slow against him in the future.
