In a tense showdown with Middlesex, Hampshire needed a victory and Shaheen Afridi came to the rescue in the most incredible of fashions. Not many International bowlers have been able to leave a mark as big as Shaheen’s in England’s domestic limited overs scene in recent times.
Shaheen Afridi finished with figures of 6/19 – the best ever T20 bowling figures for Hampshire.

With Middlesex needing a mere 21 off 16 with four wickets remaining, Shaheen gave his Hampshire boys renewed hope and not just that, he laid a win out on the plate for them.
Shaheen Shah Afridi becomes the first Pakistani to take four wickets in consecutive deliveries, overall 7th player to do so. Congratulations @iShaheenAfridi

The pace starlet bagged four wickets in four balls to win his side the game. He finished off with figures of 6-19.
The most mind-boggling thing about his spell was that all six wickets were bowled.
