Alan Wilkins, a former cricketer who now works as a commentator, has voiced his happiness over the selection of renowned Pakistani pacers Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf for the Hundred.
The Welsh cricketer expressed his joy at learning that the two Pakistani fast spinners will represent Welsh Fire in this year’s competition on his Twitter account.
The 69-year-old commentator went on to say that the inclusion of these two fast bowlers would strengthen their bowling unit and help the team in the 100-ball competition.

In the upcoming third iteration, Welsh Fire chose Shaheen Shah Afridi for the $100,000 prize and Haris Rauf for the $60,000 prize.
In the eighth Pakistan Super League (PSL), both speedsters bowled for the Lahore Qalandars, who last month successfully defended their championship.
For the past two years, Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf have been a crucial component of the national system and have performed admirably.
Eight teams will compete for the championship in the third and eagerly anticipated 100-ball cricket competition, which is scheduled for August.
