Mirpur: With the World Twenty20 beginning here in less than a fortnight's time, explosive allrounder Shahid Afridi's ominous form augurs well for the Pakistan side, skipper Misbah-ul-Haq said on Tuesday.
"The biggest plus has been Afridi. Not only in the Asia Cup but with Worldy T20 coming it's good for Pak team," Misbah said after Afridi's 25-ball 59 with seven sixes and two fours set up a three-wicket win over Bangladesh on Tuesday. (Points Table)
It was Pakistan's record run chase as they have come out of a poor run of losing 12 matches while chasing 250-plus target.
