Shahid Afridi: “I think such cricket should be played. I pray that PSL is blessed. Everyone was supporting his own team from the stands. The start was good, Tamim and Hafeez opened well. Ravi played a great innings. I was not confident, even Hafeez was not confident while giving the ball to Sammy for the last over but Darren was himself very confident that he can do it. So we gave him the ball and he delivered.”
