All-rounder, Shahid Afridi said two days before that winning the World Cup with Pakistan would be the perfect way to end his ODI career and admits he made the right decision by calling time on the 50-over game.
But did he actually keep his words in the Quarter final of World Cup 2015 against Australia? Afridi could be able to make only 23 runs in 15 balls and got out just before the power play. However, his best performance could make Pakistan qualify for the Quarter-Final. But unfortunately, his bad performance throughout his innings made another record.
Yes, lack of co-ordination in Pakistan team brought it back from the World Cup 2015. Pakistan team set the target of only 213 runs against Australia which was actually an easy target for the Kangros.
Shahid Afridi earlier said, “Pakistan is one team which can beat any team and can lose to any team”.
Pakistan’s Captain Misbah-ul-Haq said, “Obviously disappointing, credit to Australia, they really deserved it, they bowled really well. [batting underperformed] I think so, at one stage 270-80 was on but we kept losing wickets and some of the batting shot selection really cost us.”
