Meanwhile, speaking at the post-match press-conference, WXI skipper, Shahid Afridi applauded his opponents and said,“They are champions and they played like champions. Want to thank ICC for inviting me, being part of a good force. We have to help each other through sports, cricket, if people are struggling with health or education, we should support each other. I’m lucky to finish my career at the Home of Cricket, thanks to Andy Flower and everyone for giving me the opportunity. I’m struggling with my fitness, but because of this cause Iâ €™m here.”
