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.

The dismissal:

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.
