Afridi steals the championship at T20 worldcup final

{ Posted on Jun 21 2009 by rutambhara }


This time it was Pakistan who claimed the T20 world cup championship.With a superb bowling of Abdul Razzaq’s three wicket, Pakistan restricted the opponent SriLanka at 138-6.It was the decision of Kumar Sangakarra the captain of the losing team to take up bating first after winning the toss.

The second innings start was pretty good by Pakistan.They scored 139 with a loss of two wickets in just 18.2 overs. It was the ever claimed young Shahid Afridi who made the game on their side with a six and four in the 17th over and was declared as the man of match.

Now, its a question mark on IPL , whether the absence at IPL was a boon for Pakistan in disguise or its just real good play.
