Spirited Waqar takes Pakistan to 16 run victory
As they say, when it rains, it pours. Pakistan having got into a winning frame of mind were unstoppable. In a clinical batting display followed by some inspired bowling the Pakistanis won the Coca Cola Cup 2000 by 16 runs.
When Shahid Afridi is at the crease he does not muck around.
Either he is scoring runs or is back in the pavilion. Off late,
he has not spent enough time at the wicket to make a decent score.
However, the shiny batting track that the final was played on was
for Afridi to go for his shots. With no lateral movement to speak of, Afridi launched
himself into drives with vigour not commonly displayed.
