Shaheen Shah Afridi has been away from the field for a long time due to injury. He was injured in the Test match against Sri Lanka in July last year. Pakistani star Afridi had recovered from injury before the T20 World Cup. He also wreaked havoc in the World Cup, but he got injured again in the final and has not been able to make a comeback yet. On the other hand, Indian star bowler Jasprit Bumrah is also injured. Both the best bowlers in the world are suffering from injury at the moment and in spite of this, there is an ongoing debate about who is the best of the two.
Pakistani veteran Abdul Razzaq has even said that Bumrah is not even close to Shaheen. Bumrah took 128 wickets in 30 Tests, 121 in 72 ODIs and 70 wickets in 60 T20 matches. Shaheen has 99 wickets in 25 Tests, 62 wickets in 32 ODIs and 58 wickets in 47 T20s.

Back against Australia!
Recently Indian captain Rohit Sharma had said on his return that even that is not clear at this time. He will not play the first 2 Test matches. Rohit had said that I am expecting that he will play the last 2 Test matches against Australia. We don’t want to take any chances with them and back injuries are always serious. We have to play a lot of cricket after this.
