Shahid Afridi’s 40-ball 81* sealed the game against Edmonton Royals in the Global T20 league, Canada. His side Brampton Wolves is undefeated in the tournament and is looking to finish a high. Then the victory what caught attention is his cheeky banter with his batting partner Wahab Riaz.
Afridi refused to take a double in the final delivery of the innings. Though his partner was ready, Afridi declined it. However, the stump-mic conversations further revealed the reasons behind the same.
Shahid Afridi was caught asking “Who would bowl if he takes that extra run”. This made the entire social media burst into waves of laughter. There were many such recordings in the past, but this one made sure to entertain the most.
A lot of twitter users were left amused by this banter and made hilarious comments on Lala. While few of them termed that he is ‘lazy’ for the run, several others made several creative trolls on the same.
Afridi was awarded the player of the game for his all-round skills. He also ended up with the spell of 1/14 that was enough to seal the victory by 27 runs.
A crucial clash
Brampton Wolves will now face Winnipeg Hawks today. It will really be an interesting battle as a win can take the wolves to the top of the table. The global T20 league has been really batsman dominating till now and it would change the course of the tournament if bowlers could create an impact.
