Karachi Blues breathes a sigh of relief after putting a close game against Islamabad in their pockets. A well-crafted 62 from Khurram, 33 in the middle from Fawad and 11 balls 21 runs cameo from Anwar led an all-important win for the Blues.

Afridi bowled an orthodox leg spinner to Shahid Yousaf which he played leaving his crease and the ball came right from the middle of his bat. The ball flew back to Afridi like a stinger. Afridi who moved his face away from the line of the ball also moved his right hand up as a reflex movement.

Afridi’s idea was to save his face by holding his hand up front, he never knew the ball would hit his palm and will stuck in there and this is exactly what happened. Afridi in an effort to save his face got the ball right in his hand.
