No other cricketer in his generation blends genius so liberally with lunacy as Shahid Afridi, and though there were glimpses of both in Mirpur, Afridi sent Pakistan’s fans into raptures and endeared himself to them again, as only he can, with two mighty blows during an incredibly tense final over. The India-Pakistan clash was given a finish deserving of its profile, as Pakistan ran India’s 245 down with two balls and one wicket remaining. Unless a major upset occurs over the next few days, Pakistan will most likely play Sri Lanka in the final of the Asia Cup.
Mohammad Hafeez and Sohaib Maqsood had massaged the chase to a manageable position in an 87-run fifth wicket stand, but they departed in quick succession and left their team’s fate in Afridi’s comically mercurial hands. Having run Maqsood out and played one of his no-look slogs second ball, Afridi proceeded to bat intelligently with Umar Gul – the pair struck calculated blows to reel in the target. With 11 required off the last 10 balls, and four wickets still in hand, Pakistan appeared to be cruising home. Then, three wickets fell in five balls.
