Shaheen was asked by the local channel as to what extent a player can be affected when facing a social media storm.
He replied, “Because there is competition in fast bowling, so I tend to keep my focus on performance”.
The Pakistani cricketer is bound to leave for Australia shortly where he will join the rest of the Pakistan squad.
Shaheen also rejected the concerns regarding his fitness. He said, “I am now completely fit. I have also played a first-class match that improved my match fitness. Right now I have no fitness issues. To regain fitness I bowled 113 overs”.
Afridi — after a brilliant debut World Cup campaign this year — had suffered dengue virus before suffering a hamstring injury. The cricketer will be playing for the team this season.
This is from the first cricket trial of my life in 2015. Shirt, trousers, bowling shoes and cap – all borrowed from 3 elder brothers. But I got selected & went to represent U16 Pak in Aus. Rest is history, Alhumdulillah. Keep me in your prayers. #TheEagle #RiseAndRise #Nostalgic pic.twitter.com/vmlqnPqbcV
