Watch highlights from Sri Lanka vs Pakistan – the World Cup Group A game played on Feb 26, 2011 at Colombo
Scoreline: Pakistan 277/7 – Misbah ul Haq 83 no, Younis Khan 72, Kamran 39, Hafeez 32 | Herath 10-46-2, Muralitharan 10-35-1
Sri Lanka give good chase to end at 266/9 – Chamara Silva 57, Sangakkara 49, Dilshan 41, Kulasekara 24 (14) | Afridi 10-34-4, Akhtar 10-42-2
Think about it. Is there any captain like Afridi playing international cricket – loses it, complains, shouts at his players. And yet when he inspires, all (or at least most) rush to him like little girls around a teen heartthrob. Also interesting to see that Younis Khan feels the freedom to have his own say in matters from time to time. Good win by Pakistan becasue it shatters the concept of favourites around a World Cup that is open to anyone to win. Anyone of course being defined as a number not exceeding 5, maybe 6.
