Shahid Afridi and Gautam Gambhir had a clash on the field once again on Sunday, as the former Pakistani all-rounder, now representing the New York Warriors, delivered an aggressive batting performance against Gambhir’s team, the NJ Tritons, in the ongoing US Masters T10 league.
The New York Warriors, while batting first, made a respectable start with Kamran Akmal and Richard Levi contributing rapid, impactful innings. However, their scoring momentum declined after the departure of these opening batsmen in quick succession. Stepping in at the fourth spot, Afridi demonstrated his remarkable ability to strike the ball with immense power, ensuring an impressive conclusion for his team.
The Pakistani all-rounder smashed an astonishing 37 runs from merely 12 deliveries, including six boundaries and two sixes. This remarkable display of batting prowess allowed the Warriors to achieve a commendable total of 84 runs in just five overs.

Nevertheless, Afridi’s heroic performance ended up being in vain, as Jesse Ryder’s dazzling 38 runs off 12 balls, embellished with three boundaries and four sixes, helped the Tritons in successfully chasing the target in 4.4 overs.
