"Speed Se Kuch Nahi Hota": Pakistan Pacer's Reply To Question Involving Umran Malik
In the recently concluded IPL, SRH pacer Umran Malik returned with 22 wickets and hence he earned a call-up to India squad for the upcoming South Africa series
Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has been in fine form across formats for the past few years.
Shaheen Afridi, who won the Sir Garfield Sobers award for the men's cricketer of the year in 2021,
has been tormenting batters from across the globe with his swing, and line and length.
On being asked about New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson and young India fast bowler Umran Malik's mindboggling speeds in the IPL,
Shaheen said that raw pace is of no use without line, length and swing.
"Speed se kuch nahi hota (speed is of no use)," he said when asked if he wanted to improve his pace, with the likes of Ferguson and Umran registering high speeds.
"I haven't thought about bowling so fast. I personally believe, speed is of no use. If you don't have line, length and swing, you can't beat the batter easily.
I will be able to generate more pace and my line and length will also get better," Shaheen said during a press conference.
