Apparently, this was Afridi’s first match in five months and hence it was surprising that he did not show any rustiness and was in the thick of things soon.
” I’m feeling very tired and the atmosphere of the dressing room is very good. Thankfully there is enough recovery time before the next match. The pitch was really good and I hope the crowd enjoyed it,” said Afridi as he bagged the Man of the Match award.
