Shahid Afridi continued from where he left off from the last ball of the match against India in the Asia Cup 2014. Against Bangladesh on Tuesday, Afridi slammed an 18-ball fifty to take his team closer to the final of the Asia Cup. Afridi was eventually run-out for a 25-ball 59 which included seven sixes and two fours.

He hit one very high in the air and Mushfiqur Rahim, who had all the time in the world, spilled the catch. Afridi, who was struggling with his back, perhaps wanted a runner and had been duly declined. After a long halt, Afridi’s carnage continued as he lofted one over the fine-leg area for a six. But Bangladesh finally take a huge sigh of relief when Afridi was run-out for 59.
