The former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi made his debut for Quetta Gladiators yesterday in HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season seven and things didn’t go as planned for the legendary all-rounder.
Islamabad United scored a plethora of runs as they registered the highest total of the ongoing season (229/4).
Afridi, who returned to the field after recovering from Covid-19, unfortunately, conceded 67 runs and managed to take only a wicket. His most expensive over was the last over (20th), where he went for 20 runs.
The four-over spell also set a new record of conceding the most runs in the HBL Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) history.
Earlier, Islamabad United’s Zafar Gohar held the record of conceding the most runs — 65.
