Pakistan’s star all-rounder Shahid Afridi gave an amazing kickstart to the all-new T10 Cricket League, by taking three consecutive wickets in the very first three balls of the match on Sunday. Afridi seemed on a roll as he knocked down Rilee Rossouw, Dwayne Bravo and the captain of Maratha Arabians and popular Indian cricketer – Virendra Sehwag, back to back! The entire stadium went berserk at this amazing performance by the all-rounder.
During this match, Bollywood actress Zarine Khan was also sitting in the stadium enjoying every bit of it. She was wearing a Pakhtoons T-shirt and was seen cheering for this team throughout the match.
At every wicket or score, she would stand up and start dancing. After the match, when she was asked about 37-year-old Afridi’s amazing performance despite his age, she said that he is still young! Shahid Afridi happens to be the captain of the winning team Pakhtoons. Captain Afridi, whose team made a big score of 121 runs in 10 overs, won the Man of the Match. Sehwag’s team wound up at 96 at the loss of 7 wickets and lost the match.
Interestingly, Zarine was quoted saying, “Not sure about cricket but adore Afridi”.
Is love in the air? Well, only time will tell. Let’s wait and watch if we happen to see these two every now and then sugar quoting each other. Moreover, Bollywood actresses falling for cricket players is see too often these days. You know what we are talking about considering the recent two glam studded weddings on Virat-Anushka and Zaheer-Sagarika.
