There is no dearth of entertainment when Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad is on the field. The bulk-sized wicketkeeper-batsman is known for his brilliant hard-hitting and chirpy nature behind the stumps. Recently, playing for Rajputs in the T10 cricket league in Sharjah, the right-handed batsman smashed 12-ball half-century to create a record. In the next match, Shahzad failed to put up a show with his bat and only managed six.
However, Shahzad’s little stay at the crease will be known for antics between him and Pakhtoons fast bowler Sohail Khan. Shahzad failed to make a connection on the first ball and Khan ran up to him to tease him. On the next ball, the Afghan batsman smashed Khan for a huge six and it was his turn to make a remark.

Though Khan made a comeback as Shahzad failed to pick his slower deliveries. Eventually, Shahzad was dismissed as he holed out to Shahid Afridi at mid-wicket. Soon after the wicket, Khan ran towards the dejected Shahzad and grabbed his belly in celebration. Everyone present there including commentators enjoyed the scene.
