Even though Shahzad played a brilliant knock against Bangladesh to open up Pakistan’s World T20 2016 campaign but his Quetta Gladiator’s mate and former English cricketer Kevin Pietersen has some serious advice for him.
The compliment KP passed was a supportive one for his QG fellow but what he later said was not less than trolling of the Pakistani star batsman.
The English star, who is celebrated as one of the biggest T20 stars worldwide, passed on his comment for Pakistani opener via Facebook, he shared a picture of Shehzad with him and other fellows of Quetta Gladiators at PSL and captioned it as:
Love seeing the good guys do so well! Well done yesterday, @iahmadshahzad! Top batting but leave the helicopter shots to MS & I! You could have got a 100! Not bad for someone who went selected in the first place. ???

In his message for the Pakistani star he also discussed the Indian skipper Dhoni, who is recognised as the inventor of Helicopter short. KP went on talking about Helicopter short as Shehzad got out Bangladesh while he tried to play the helicopter short.

Shahzad scored 52 of just 39 deliveries against Ban and his partnership with Hafeez let Pakistan get stronghold of the match.

KP trolled Ahmad Shahzad or it was just a message?
Blast from the past?

Shahzad scored 290 runs in 10 matches with strike rate of 143.36. (Avg 29)

Is it just about Helicopter Short?
