A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news looking at Pakistan thrashing Bangladesh by five wickets in the opening ODI in Dhaka thanks to a memorable all-round performance from Shahid Afridi
Afridi hit an unbeaten 24 to follow up a haul of five for 23 as Bangladesh were bowled out for 91 and Pakistan were made to work hard before reaching a relatively comfortable 93 for five.
During the course of the game, Afridi became the second man (after Sanath Jayasuriya) to score 6000 ODI runs and take 300 wickets. Afridi has had an extraordinary career in the game, scoring a century in 37 balls, retiring more than once, hitting hundreds of sixes and representing a number of teams around the world including Hampshire and the Deccan Chargers in the Indian Premier League.
He captained his country to the 2011 World Cup semi-final before withdrawing from international cricket following Pakistan's tour of the West Indies. His latest return has been triumphant, playing a leading role in series successes in the UAE against Sri Lanka and now starting well against Bangladesh.
