پاکستان اور انڈیا کے میچ میں دھونی نے آفریدی کا کیچ چھوڑ دیا اس کے بعد آفریدی نے ایسی دھلائی کی چوکوں اور چھکوں کی بارش کر دی۔دیکھئے

Shahid Afridi has played a lot of brilliant innings in his limited overs career. He was one of the best against arch rivals India. The Indian team has got a lot of friends of Shahid Afridi as well. Afridi has always said that he enjoyed the most while playing against the Indian team. Shahid Afridi and the Indian team have got some history. Most of the best from Afridi came against this team. Afridi’s second fast hundred and the fastest ever against India was hit in India. It was a great innings from the Pakistani all-rounder. Afridi took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners. The major moment of the game was when MS Dhoni who was a young comer to the Indian side dropped the Pakistani all-rounder. Afridi was batting and an outside edge from him went towards the wicket keeper and slip region. MS Dhoni could have taken this catch as well but he did not.

This outside edge came off the bowling of Ashish Nehra. Now Nehra in those times was young and energetic. He used to bowl with a decent line and length as well. This was not a wicket taking delivery but Afridi almost made it into one. The ball was outside the off stump and despite knowing that there was a fielder present at first slip Afridi went after it. This is how Afridi batted in his whole career. He was never cautious and always went after the bowlers. The ball was wide outside the off stump. The cut shot from Afridi produced a thick outside edge. Now the ball went towards the right of Dhoni. The distance was not too much here as well. But it seems Dhoni might have thought that the ball was going towards the first slip fielder. He did move but at the same time did not stretch his body for the catch. But his movement deceived his partner here.

Rahul Dravid who was standing in the slip thought that Dhoni was going for the catch and as a result he did not move at all. Now that resulted in a total confusion. Dhoni thought Dravid would easily snap the ball and Dravid thought it was Dhoni’s catch. In this confusion the ball went in between the two and raced away towards the fence. Nehra who was expecting a wicket here had to watch the ball hitting the fence. He lost his cool over his team mates. He was not happy because he knew what Afridi could do if been given a chance. His fears came out true when Afridi went after the Indian bowling after this chance. He struck a series of sixes and fours and within no time he was standing successful in giving Pakistan a heap of runs on a little number of balls. It was an outstanding innings from the Pakistani batsman Shahid Afridi.
