Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi on Monday was named as ICC’s Men Cricketer of the Year.

Shaheen took 78 wickets in 36 internationals at an average of 22.20 with best bowling figures of 6/51.
The tall Pakistani quick was on fire throughout 2021, knocking some of the best batters over across all three formats of the game. He especially had a year to remember in Tests and T20Is, reaching his peak during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in UAE where he impressed one and all with his sheer speed and skills.

He would take seven wickets in six matches during the tournament in Pakistan’s run to the semi-final. He ruled the shortest format throughout the calendar year, scalping 23 wickets in 21 matches with his death bowling improving by leaps and bounds.

After a slow start to the year in Test cricket in New Zealand, Afridi burst to life during the home series against South Africa. He continued his brilliant form throughout the rest of the year in...

The former Pakistan cricketer, Mohsin Khan has come down hard on the Pakistan cricket team claiming that eight of their top eleven cricketers don’t meet the fitness standards.

Mohsin, who has played 48 Tests and 75 ODIs for the country, has suggested the name of Sharjeel Khan for the opening slot citing that he is a talented player and his below-par fitness levels won’t matter much as there are already a lot of players in the Pakistan squad who do not match the required fitness standards of international cricket.

Organisers of the ICC Twenty20 World Cup are confident the men’s tournament will thrive even if it is directly competing with Australia’s football codes, as they consider COVID-19 contingency plans they hope will never be needed.
