Don’t look to survive, look to score runs from Shaheen Afridi: Gautam Gambhir

The T20 World Cup is only few days away and the fans can’t wait to see the action in Australia. The World Cup will be starting from 16th October and the Indian fans want the team to win this year’s trophy just like other teams want to do. Ahead of this tournament, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has advised Indian team on something.

Gautam Gambhir has given advice on how Indian batters should approach Shaheen Afridi in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Shaheen Afridi was injured and it was speculated earlier that the star Pakistani pacer will miss one of the biggest tournaments this year but he travelled to Australia and will feature for Pakistan cricket team in the world cup.

Gautam Gambhir feels defence should not be the approach against Shaheen Afridi. Indian batters should always find to score runs against him whenever he is bowling as advised by Gautam Gambhir.

“When it comes to Shaheen Afridi, don’t look to survive. Look to score runs from him. Because the moment you look to survive, everything becomes really small,” said Gautam Gambhir on Star Sports ahead of the T20 World Cup.
