The players shake hands with each other, with the umpires, with the batsmen and Afridi is seen tugging Yousuf's beard. Both laugh and walk off, hands over the shoulder. The rest of the Zimbabwe squad come on to the ground and shake hands with Pakistan players. Afridi has been named the man of the match. And that's it from us. Good night and Shab Bakhair!
