WATCH: Shahid Afridi out hit-wicket in Bangladesh Premier League
Shahid Afridi out hit-wicket: Former Pakistani captain was out in a strange manner during the Bangladesh Premier League.
During the 14th match of the ongoing sixth season of the Bangladesh Premier League between Comilla Victorians and Chittagong Vikings at Dhaka, Victorians all-rounder Shahid Afridi was seen being dismissed as hit-wicket.
Afridi’s dismissal caused a lot of initial confusion for no one had realized that his back foot had touched the stumps. It was only after watching the bails lying on the pitch that Vikings wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Shahzad and the square leg umpire realised about the same.
