Shaheen Afridi has emerged as one of the top contenders for the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for April 2024, alongside Gerhard Erasmus from Namibia and Muhammad Waseem from the UAE.

Afridi’s nomination comes on the heels of his stellar performance in the recent T20I series against New Zealand, where he showcased his prowess as Pakistan’s premier pace bowler.

The left-arm speedster displayed his skill with the ball throughout the series, claiming crucial wickets and playing a pivotal role in Pakistan’s victories. His standout performances included a Player of the Match display in the second T20I, where he secured figures of 3/13 to restrict New Zealand to a meager total of 90 runs.

In the final match of the series, Afridi further solidified his candidacy for the Player of the Month award by taking 4/30, helping Pakistan level the series with a thrilling victory. His exceptional bowling efforts earned him both the Player of the Match accolade and the Player of the Series title.
