Not only that, in the first T20 World Cup match between the two teams, Afridi sent Indian captain Virat Kohli packing with 57 runs.
Afridi gave a slow bouncer and Kohli was quick to try, sending the ball into the hands of keeper Mohammad Rizwan.
The wicket took Rizwan’s 101st catch in the short format of the game.
Speaking after his innings, Afridi said, “It was always a plan (to take early wickets).”
He added, “I practiced very hard on the net.
