All round play by Afridi make the difference in 1st semi final pak vs. SA. Afridi decided to spread the love as he killed South Africa's chances of lifting this World Cup.
Pakistan's talisman was the difference. A fact agreed upon by both captains, thousands of spectators at Trent Bridge, and millions of viewers at home. Halfway through this tournament Afridi changed his approach to batting. Encouraged by his captain, he has decided to take a couple of sightseers instead of launching immediately into a reckless assault.
Younis Khan's greatest trick has been coaxing the best out of his unpredictable match winner, especially as they have clashed at times in the past. In the last three games Afridi has produced a complete all-round game, and the results leave Pakistan standing tall.
Afridi, high on confidence after his innings, came into the attack in the seventh over but was immediately driven by Herschelle Gibbs to the cover boundary. That was as bad as his evening would get. He bounced back, bowling Herschelle Gibbs with a straight and quick delivery and, an over later, he got AB de Villiers the same way. South Africa was 50 for 3 and struggling.
