Pakistan seems to be having quite some trouble with the pink ball as there have been multiple instances of fielding lapses during the second Test at Adelaide. Pakistan bowlers took a good beating in the hands of Warner and Labuschagne with Shaheen Afridi being the only bowler to provide breakthroughs with the wicket of Labuschagne and Smith. However, Shaheen Afridi too had a bad time on field after he had some instances of misfielding, costing Pakistan more than what was already happening to them. One such instance included Shaheen Afridi chasing the ball which was speeding to the boundary only to knock over the ball with his foot into the boundary. In another instance, Shaheen Afridi let the ball pass without making any movement and indicated after the misfield, in what looked like, he hadn't sighted the ball correctly. Shaheen Afridi's misfields left netizens and fans in peals of laughter as they took to social media to poke fun at the Pakistan bowler.
