DTH News : I made error of judgement in World Cup semifinal: Afridi
Advertisement
#1
Karachi, April 11 (IANS) Impressed with Mahendra Singh Dhoni' captaincy in the World Cup final, Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi said he too should have promoted himself in the order in the semifinal against India.

In the final against Sri Lanka, Dhoni came up the order and batted at No.5 which proved to be a masterstroke. Dhoni shouldered the responsibility, hitting a match-winning unbeaten 91.

Afridi said he is not a born leader and he could have shown better judgement in the high-pressure match against the arch-rivals.

'I am not a born captain and I also make mistakes. I made mistakes in the World Cup particularly in the semifinal at Mohali. I should have gone up the order like Mahendra Singh Dhoni did against Sri Lanka in the final at Mumbai,' Afridi said during a show on Geo News.

Afridi said he should have done the same considering the hard-hitting Abdul Razzaq was there to accelerate later in the innings.

'The move by Dhoni in the final to promote himself worked. A similar move could have worked for us but we all make mistakes and it was my mistake that time,' he said.

Pakistan restricted the mighty Indian batting line-up to 260, a total which Afridi thought the team should have chased down.

'Once we held them down to 260, I knew we had a strong chance of winning the match. Unfortunately, we didn't bat well and the moment Umar Akmal got out I had a bad feeling it was not going our way,' he said.
