Netizens Think Shaheen Afridi Is A ‘Taller Version’ Of Hasbullah & We Can’t Unsee It

Shaheen Afridi taller Hasbullah

There is often a striking similarity between celebrities from Pakistan and international figures. This particular resemblance noted by social media users between Pakistani cricketer Shaheen Afridi and Russian blogger Hasbullah Magomedov seems a little peculiar as the cricketer seems a taller version of the blogger.

Twittersphere has never been afraid to speak its mind. You will find the most opinionated, as well as the most humorous people on Twitter. And they have always — emphasis on ‘always’ — got the most thought-provoking thing to say.

According to some social media users, Pakistani cricketer Shaheen Afridi resembles Hasbulla Magomedov, and we are not sure what to make of that.

Hasbullah is an 18-year-old blogger from Makhachkala, Russia. He was nicknamed ‘Mini Khabib,’ inspired by former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The TikTok star, who is believed to have a form of dwarfism, earned his nickname after posting several hilarious videos of him pretending to fight children.

As we came across a tweet saying Shaheen Afridi is a taller version of Hasbullah, we realized that the two actually share similar facial features as well as their smile, with the exception that Hasbullah’s eyes are considerably bigger.

Upon digging further, we discovered that many users share the same opinion.

For real, though!

We decided to juxtapose a few pictures of Hasbullah and the cricketer to see how much they resemble one another. Have a look at these:
