Former Pakistan player asks Jasprit Bumrah to learn new ball bowling skills from Shaheen Afridi



Former Pakistan fast-bowler Aaqib Javid loves to vent out all his feeling on social media and loves to stay in the news. Days after he hailed Babar Azam’s technique to be better than Indian captain Virat Kohli, Javed now has come up with some advice for Jasprit Bumrah.

Javed has compared Bumrah to young Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi and said that the Indian bowler needs to learn a lot with the new ball and this is where Shaheen was better.

“(Jasprit) Bumrah is a really good bowler who is good at everything. Right, now he is better than Shaheen [Afridi] in terms of death bowling. Although, with the new ball, Shaheen is ahead of him,” Javed said.

However, the former pacer went on to add that Pakistan management needed to manage the workload of Shaheen as he could be a match-winner for a long time. He called it “injustice” that Shaheen is made to play every match. He requested Pakistan team to not play Shaheen when the side has ost the series or adopt a proper rotation policy.

“Shaheen should only play those matches which are important,” he wemt on to say.

Bumrah has been a regular feature for the Indian team across all formats ever since he made his international debut in early 2016. He has picked up 250 wickets at the international level. Shaheen, on the other hand, made his debut in 2019 and has 124 wickets to his name across all formats.

Shaheen has taken the charge of the Pakistan bowling attack across all the formats and he has also emerged as a leader of the side. He has been hailed as one of the best bowlers in the current generation and with his pace and skills, he can certainly go on to leave a lasting impression on the game.

Amazon will no longer offer its prime membership in India: Read more



Amazon will no longer offer monthly Prime membership in India. Moving forward, the e-commerce giant will only be offering three-month or annual Prime memberships. The Amazon Prime subscription amount begun at Rs. 129 per month, but this starting pack has been removed to adhere with new Reserve Bank of India mandate. RBI’s new guideline asks banks and financial institutions to implement an additional factor of authentication (AFA) for processing recurring online transactions. The deadline for implementation of this new mandate has been set for September 30.


Amazon has updated its support page to reflect the removal of monthly membership of Amazon Prime subscription. Additionally, since April 27, Amazon has also temporarily discontinued new member sign-ups for Amazon Prime free trial as well. At the moment, if a user is looking to buy Amazon Prime membership or renew it, they can only purchase three month or annual subscription. Three months subscription for Amazon Prime is priced at Rs. 329 and the yearly membership is priced at Rs. 999 per year.


The new RBI framework was originally announced in August 2019 and an extended deadline for banks and financial institutions has been set for September 30 this year. This deadline was extended to “prevent any inconvenience to the customers.” Gadgets 360 learnt that merchants through various industry bodies urged RBI and the government to hold the proposed system as it was believed to disrupt auto-payments of mobile, utility, and other bills and subscription charges of over-the-top (OTT) platforms.

Initially, RBI issued the framework to deploy AFA for recurring transactions worth up to Rs. 2,000 in 2019. It, however, extended that rule in December last year to transactions of up to a limit of Rs. 5,000 per transaction. Transactions above that cut-off will require an additional one-time password (OTP). RBI also warned that any further delay in ensuring complete adherence to the framework beyond the extended timeline would attract stringent supervisory action.
