As the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s World Cup 2023 draws near, everyone is speculating on which player will have the best performance in the mega tournament.
Certainly, Pakistani seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi — one of the best fast bowlers — will be one of the biggest talking points among fans and critics for his lethal bowling spells.
While Pakistan cricket fans pin their high hopes on the pace sensation to give some exciting performances in the upcoming mega-events, he has been picked as the top wicket-taker in the World Cup 2023 by former West Indies star cricketer Sir Vivian Richards.
The tall left-armer is considered the finest new ball bowler and will be leading Pakistan’s bowling attack in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 and World Cup 2023 later this year.
When asked who would be the best performer with the ball this year in the WC, Sir Viv named Shaheen.
“The leading wicket-taker in the World Cup will be Shaheen Afridi.”
