Pakistan Twenty20 International (T20I) skipper Shahid Afridi has said that the upcoming Super 10 Group 2, Match 26 against Australia in the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium in Mohali on Friday, could be his last international game. He made the speculation, after Pakistan lost the Match 23 against New Zealand on Tuesday, and seemingly crashed out of the tournament. Following the win, he said, “First I want to congratulate NZ. One point it looked like they might touch 200 but our bowlers pulled it back. It looked like a chaseable total. We didn’t play well after first six overs. Played a lot of dot balls. Shehzad and Sharjeel started well but we couldn’t play well against the spinners. We keep repeating mistakes and in this format you can’t do that. It might be the last game of my career against Australia. Let’s see how things go.” FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: New Zealand vs Pakistan, ICC World T20 2016, Super 10 Group 2, Macth 23 at Mohali 

New Zealand have booked a T20 World Cup 2016 berth by defeating Pakistan by  in the Match 23 of the T20 World Cup 2016 at Mohali by 22 runs. Sharjeel Khan started the Pakistan chase in electric fashion with a simple plan; to go after everything in the powerplay.  That is exactly what he did and on a surface that was conducive for shot making, he made light of the New Zealand bowlers early on with a little bit of luck once or twice. He was removed from the equation by Adam Milne in the final over of the powerplay for a 25-ball 47. Thereafter, New Zealand came back into the contest in a strong manner with the fielding placements removed.
