Shahid Khan Afridi made a 25-ball 59 half century which helped Pakistan to beat Bangladesh by three wickets and reach the final of the Asia Cup 2014 against Sri Lanka. Shahid Afridi said he was confident of scoring the required runs as the situation was perfect and gave him the license to play his shots. “I tried my level best to perform well. Misbah-ul-Haq has great support and it’s my type of situation and I had the licence. I was confident that 10, 10.5 an over was possibly so I took a chance,” said Afridi, the Man of the Match. “I have to congratulate Bangladesh for the score they put up. We need to do better with the ball.” The second star award goes to Ahmed Shehzad who made more than a century to help Pakistan achieve its target. He received the award of the most trusted player of the match.
