Shahid Afridi back as Captain

Posted on at

 Today was the third one day international of the 5 match series between New Zealand and Pakistan.
The series was level with 1 each. Misbah Ul Haq was replaced as captain by Shahid afridi. As Misbah is out of the next 3 one day internationals and it means Misbah will not take part in the remaining matches of the series. Which is sit back for Pakistan. But today Afridi proved that we have players who can win the match single handedly. So Afridi was captain today instead of Misbah Ul haq.

Pakistan batted first today and the opners Muhammad Hafeez and  Ahmed Shehzad set a solid platform for Pakistan. Pakistani batting lineup made a flying start today scoring 63 runs in just 9 overs for the Ist wicket. Ahmed Shehzad scored a century for Pakistan . Younas Khan, Asad Shafeeq, Muhammad Hafeez and Haris Sohail contributed well to the massive total of 368 runs. Afridi came and made a half century in  just 21 balls. Afridi was on fire today.Then came sarfaraz with a cameo knock of 30 runs in just 13 balls. Sarfaraz is proving to be a good keeper and batsmen as well. Afridi played a captain’s inning today and it seemed that Pakistan was not missing Misbah Ul Haq. They kept on scoring runs and runs and scored a massive total of 368-7 in the 50 overs.

Then it was time for the bowlers to show their class Muhammad Irfan took two wickets in the beginning which put New Zealand on the back foot. Afridi was great with the ball too as he took 3 wickets for 37 runs. Part time bowler Haris Sohail also took 3 wickets for 47 runs . New Zealand were out of the game since the Ist over and it never looked that they are going to give Pakistan a serious challenge for the match.
Afridi batted and bowled excellently and he showed he is a great leader and capatain.Afridi was leading from the front and it never looked that we are playing without our main captain Misbah Ul haq .
Well done boys.
