Boom2 is my favorite athlete not because of this very match but he's a fighter and hungry to be part of success and on a given day he's the best to finish it off..coz there are players who score 100 and perish to lose match so not 100's but the value that matter no matter its 20 odd runs... Afridi is all time best , Well done Pakistan and good luck

@Mattew, Imran Khan in my opinion was a great all rounder and a leader. Under his leadership, Pakistan won in England, India and managed to draw against WI. Afridi is also very good. I have been mostly following the Asia cup thanks for the Afghan side. They look good. Cheers from New Zealand

Pakistan were very unfortunate not to get some of the decisions their way ay. Jadeja was plumb lbw against Hafeez and Gul also had Ashwin caught behind. If those wickets went Pakistan's way, i think the India would have been bowled out much cheaper. Anyway, the match was exciting and afridi was awesome. We have similar exciting Rugby games whenever All blacks takes on the Aussies ay. cheers mate

Shahid Afridi, you are a gun player, possibly one of Pakistans greatest ever all rounder, BOOM BOOM you are a true legend of world cricket...from an Aussie

Dhoni is completely missed in the series not only as a captain but also as an experienced finisher and wicket-keeper. DK's poor keeping and slow inning along with the inability of our both pacers to take wickets &/or stop is the culprit of defeat against Pak & SL..Where is the bowling coach??....And why not they bat Jadeja @ no 5 ahead of Dk and Rayudu. Jaddu plays bouncers better than Raina, handles spinners brilliantly, rotates strike in middle overs & can change his gears as per the situation & is more experienced than both.
