The Desert Vipers’ capture of Pakistan’s premier fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi as the first player signing for the forthcoming DP World International League T20 (ILT20) Season 2 marks a significant addition to their lineup. The Desert Vipers’ bowling assault gains a fearsome edge because of Shaheen Shah Afridi’s prowess as a speed spearhead.
The Glazers, who also control Manchester United Football Club, are the proprietors of Desert Vipers. “I am excited to join the Desert Vipers. I know there are many Pakistan cricket fans in the UAE, and I hope they will support our team in the upcoming ILT20,” Afridi said in a statement.
“Shaheen is a player of world-class caliber who has had a significant impact not only for Pakistan but for every team he’s played for in recent times,” Vipers director of cricket Tom Moody said on their new signing. “He offers a huge amount as an impact pace bowler that has destroyed many, many top-orders and he also boasts terrific leadership skills that will add a huge amount of value to the Desert Vipers moving forward.”
The addition of Shaheen Shah Afridi to the Desert Vipers’ bowling lineup strengthens an already impressive arsenal of bowlers. With players like Wanindu Hasaranga, Matheesha Pathirana, Tom Curran, and Sheldon Cottrell in their ranks, the Vipers possess a diverse and skilled bowling attack that can apply pressure and take wickets consistently.
This signing sets the stage for an exciting season, and cricket enthusiasts can look forward to witnessing the impact of Shaheen Shah Afridi in the upcoming tournament.
