PCB Honors Shahid Afridi for Taking the Most Wickets by a Pakistani Bowler in World Cup Edition in 2011 with 21

Shahid Afridi received recognition from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for his incredible World Cup 2011 performance. He recorded the most wickets by a Pakistani bowler in a single World Cup with 21 during the competition.

A outstanding performer at the 2011 World Cup, Shahid Afridi proved essential to Pakistan’s run to the semifinals. He appeared in eight games, taking 21 wickets with a strike rate of 21.28 and an average of 12.85. Against the West Indies, he had his greatest bowling performance, taking 5 wickets for just 16 runs.

Given that Afridi had multiple injuries, his performance was all the more remarkable. Prior to the competition, he needed surgery for a knee injury, and during the World Cup group stage, he hurt his shoulder. Despite these difficulties, he gave his squad excellent performances.
