When it comes to playing in league cricket all around the world, the demand of Pakistani players is quite high along with West Indian cricketers. There are certain players who almost feature regularly in all the leagues around the world and Shahid Afridi is one of them barring IPL for unknown reasons.
Having said that, Shahid Afridi was handpicked by Melbourne Renegades in July 2011 for their Big Bas League season after a successful World Cup outing as an individual player where he was the highest wicket-taker with 21 wickets. His team was supposed to face Hobart Hurricanes on 18th January 2012. The opposition had another right arm fast bowler in their setup, Rana Naveed-ul-Hasan.
While batting first there were no signs of Shahid Afridi until 16th over. However, when he came in to bat, the captain of the opposition team made a predictable call by introducing Rana Naveed into the attack. In the 3rd over of his second spell, Rana Naveed delivered 2 balls to Shahid Afridi who played them cautiously for just one run.
Probably Shahid Afridi had enough and when Rana Naveed came in to bowl his last over, he did not know what he was going to face. An angry Afridi. Rana Naveed, who is also known for delivering cracking yorkers and slower balls, tried his luck and bowled one slower delivery with back hand which turned out to be a juicy full toss on the leg stump. Afridi made full use of it and smoked it over square leg boundary for a monster six.
Shahid Afridi vs Rana Naveed battle was apparently won by the former since the latter was unable to get Afridi out. Moreover, it was a terrific stroke from Shahid Afridi who made full advantage of the low full toss and dispatched it for six runs.
