Shaheen Afridi named Pakistan vice-captain for Australia Tests

Pace sensation Shaheen Shah Afridi was on Wednesday appointed vice-captain of the Pakistan Test team for the series against Australia, starting December 14, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said.

Earlier, Shaheen was also appointed captain of the Pakistan Men’s T20 Cricket Team, after Babar Azam stepped down as captain in all three formats after the ICC World Cup 2023 debacle.

He will step into the forefront of the pace bowling unit in the absence of Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf, with Faheem Ashraf providing strong support.

Shaheen has played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 52 T20Is for Pakistan, registering 105 wickets at an economy of 3.08.
