I don’t know what my favourite moment of the T20 Final is; the Sri Lankan batting order falling apart so quick that I thought I was hallucinating, Afridi’s sensible turn at the bat coupled with the sixers and boundaries in the last few overs, Dil Dil Pakistan playing at Lord’s, the intelligent cricket played by the Pakistani team…all in all, I’m over the moon, what an incredible game this final has been. Seventeen years and one day after we won the World Cup in 1992, Pakistani cricketers have given its countrymen an indescribable sense of elation. Pakistan Zindabad!
