Shaheen Afridi’s Masterstroke Dismisses Mahmudullah: Bangladesh Stumbles at Eden Gardens

World Cup: PAK vs BAN

In a high-octane clash at Eden Gardens during the World Cup 2023, the Pakistani pace sensation Shaheen Afridi delivered a game-changing moment. Facing Mahmudullah, Afridi unleashed an absolute gem of a delivery that left the seasoned batter flabbergasted.

The ball, a perfect combination of line, length, and swing, seamed back sharply, deceiving Mahmudullah completely.


Mahmudullah, attempting to work the ball to the on-side, misjudged the angle and closed the face of his bat prematurely. The ball sneaked past the outside edge, leaving Mahmudullah in dismay as it crashed into the middle and off stump.

His dismissal dealt a severe blow to Bangladesh, disrupting their painstaking rebuild after a shaky start.

As Afridi celebrated his brilliant scalp, Bangladesh found themselves reeling, emphasizing the unpredictable nature of the World Cup battles.
