In try of flicking the ball over the head of fielder at deep mid wicket, Afridi got out with excellent effort of the fielder. Its more of fielder’s wicket than bowler’s as the ball was going high over his head for maximum.

However fielder’s judgement was spectacular and he jumped on right time to catch the ball. Boom Boom Afridi could not clear the boundary rope and he was caught out but he had done his job. His target was to decrease the ratio between balls and runs and he played with 200 strike rate against Derbyshire.
