Afridi played a blinder of an innings right at the second half of the match when his team was almost out of the context. The match was in Srilanka’s lap and only a miracle could have saved his team and the miracle started happening right from his own batting.
Afridi scored 45 runs of merely 22 balls. He hit 4 giant sixes in his innings and he was the first batsman for Pakistan to start turning things around for his team. His first major hit came to left arm off spinner Siriwardane.
