Edmonton Royals vs Brampton Wolves: Age is just a number as they say and who better than Shahid Afridi would know that! The former Pakistan cricketer rolled back the years as he smashed a breathtaking 81* off 40 balls to power his side to an emphatic win. Afridi showed that he still had it in him to clear the boundary ropes with ease as he smashed five sixes and 10 fours in his breezy knock. Afridi’s knock helped the Wolves register a mammoth 207 in their stipulated 20 overs. Afridi also did a reasonable job with the ball as he conceded merely 14 runs from his four overs and picked up a wicket as well. Fans started ushering praise for the former Pakistan legend as some also asked him to make an international comeback.
