Afridi 32 runs in an over


Here is the CricInfo commentary from that eventful over. Kamran Akmal had just played out a maiden at the other end before Afridi went berserk –

38.1
Bandara to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, This is too easy now, Bandara flights it outside off and Afridi jumps down the track yet again, tries to go over cover but the thickish outside edge flies away over point for a four. Boom boom

Around the wicket from Bandara now

38.2
Bandara to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, change of angle matters little now. It’s tossed up and Afridi arrives, even before the ball is delivered, and creams it down the ground for a blistering four. Straight and hard – the best way we guess. Boom boom

Over the wicket this time

38.3
Bandara to Shahid Afridi, SIX, Shot of the day. must be, a flat-batted six to beat all flat-batted hits. Flatter this time and he charges again, tonks it sensationally through extra-cover for a six. Boom boom boom

38.4
Bandara to Shahid Afridi, SIX, And this is bigger, much bigger. Thrash, bang, wallop. Similar formula, down the ground and blasts it way over extra cover for a huge six. That’s massive. Thunder bolts flying around now

38.5
Bandara to Shahid Afridi, SIX, Miscued and that’s six more, he tries to whack it over long-on but the thick edge howitzers over long-off for another six. The fielder can’t get to it

38.6
Bandara to Shahid Afridi, SIX, What an over. Ends with a flourish, down the ground and plasters it back over the bowler’s head for a huge hit. 446666 – the second most expensive over in one-dayers. Only behind Herschelle Gibbs. Blitz, boom, bash, bosh. Bring them on
