Pakistan icon and T10 League side Pakhtoons captain Shahid Afridi came up with a match-winning effort in the first Qualifier in Sharjah on Saturday.
Afridi hit seven sixes during his innings of 59 not out from just 17 balls which helped his Pakhtoons team post a total of 135-5 against the Northern Warriors.
He also hit three fours during his innings that took the team to a challenging score in the crucial clash.
His innings was the first substantial innings in the T10 League for Afridi after mainly employing himself as a bowler in the tournament.
Afridi’s knock proved critical as Windies batsman Rovman Powell belted 80 from just 35 balls with nine sixes but couldn’t see the Warriors home.
Afridi bowled two overs for 25 runs and saw his team hold on to a 13-run win.
With the win, Pakhtoons qualified for the final of the tournament.
