Bhuvneshwar KumarIn an exciting turn of events, Pakistan’s left-arm pacer, Shaheen Shah Afridi, has broken the T20 record previously held by India’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar for the most first-over wickets.

This historic moment occurred during the first T20I of the Pakistan vs. New Zealand series, where Afridi dismissed Tim Robinson with a masterful in-swinger, taking his tally of first-over wickets to 47.Afridi’s achievement now places him ahead of other renowned bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar (46), Mohammad Amir (43), and David Willey (42). This remarkable feat showcases Afridi’s prowess and contribution to Pakistan’s cricketing success.

Unfortunately, despite the anticipation surrounding the first T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand, persistent rain led to the match being called off. Only a brief two-ball action was possible at the Pindi Cricket Stadium before rain interrupted play once again, leading to the match’s abandonment.

The toss, delayed by half an hour, saw New Zealand’s captain, Michael Bracewell, opting to bat first. However, continuous rain disrupted the proceedings, ultimately preventing any substantial play from taking place.The tireless efforts of the ground staff proved futile as the rain persisted, extinguishing any hopes of a match or even a five-over encounter between the two competitive teams.

Both Pakistan and New Zealand, represented by their skilled squads, were geared up for an exciting match, but nature had its own plans, dampening the spirits of players and fans alike.
