Shahid Afridi proves ‘age is just a number’ after smashing 81 Off 40 Balls in Canada

6

Boom Boom Afridi has once again proved that age is nothing but a number as the 39-year-old all-rounder displayed a match winning performance against Edmonton Royals at the Global T20 Canada on Sunday.

The Brampton Wolves won their second game in the tournament after Afridi’s scintillating knock. With the help of 10 fours and five sixes, he scored 81 runs off 40 balls and remained unbeaten. Known for his huge sixes, the former Pakistani captain, came to bat in the eleventh over and jolted the opponent’s bowling line-up.

The veteran all-rounder also did a feasible job with the ball as he conceded only 14 runs in four overs and picked up a wicket of fellow Pakistani batsman Mohammad Hafeez.

Afridi celebrated his remarkable knock with the fans on social media as he bagged man of the match award. He retweeted GT20’s post by saying ‘Sher abi zinda hai’ (The Lion is alive).

Although it was Afridi’s first match in five months, but he seemed in-form in all three departments.
