Known for his on-field antics, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi once again became the talk of the town as he sported an unusual helmet in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) semi-final on Saturday. At a time when batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar continues to emphasize the significance of helmets in the game, Afridi donned a helmet which defied its basic purpose. The Multan Sultans all-rounder was seen wearing a helmet with the top bar of the grille removed leaving an enormous gap for the ball to pass through the helmet.

While the former Pakistan skipper didn't have any impact with the bat either, instead he became a laughing stock on the internet with several netizens sharing hilarious memes. Pointing out the ineffectiveness of the helmet, one user wrote, "If you ever feel useless, just think of the Afridi helmet." Here's how the internet reacted to Afridi's new helmet: 

Karachi beats Multan in PSL semi-final

Resuming action after 8 months due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Mohammad Amir lifted Karachi Kings into their first Pakistan Super League final with a victory in the super over against table-topper Multan Sultans on Saturday. Multan faces either Peshawar Zalmi or Lahore Qalandars on Sunday for another chance for next Tuesday’s final. Amir gave away only nine runs in the super over by bowling brilliant yorkers to South African Rilee Rossouw and Englishman Ravi Bopara. West Indies’ Sherfane Rutherford had smashed Sohail Tanvir for a six and a four which had eventually guided Karachi to 13-2 in the super over.
