All rounder Afridi Record Hit Beat WI by 126 Runs

Shahid Afridi made one of the more amazing comebacks in international cricket in leading Pakistan to a crushing 126-run win over the West Indies tour in the first ODI at the Sunday.
Omitted from his country failed Champions Trophy campaign, the mercurial all-rounder returned the best-ever ODI bowling numbers by a Pakistani, and the 2nd best overall, in snaring 7 for 12 to rout the home side for just 98 off 41 overs after having top-scored with a classically swashbuckling 76 in the visitors total of 224/ 9.
happily for Pakistan, this was not one of those times and his impact on the match started with his domination of a 120-run 6th-wicket partnership with his captain, Misbah-ul-Haq (52), the pair rescuing their team from the depths of 47 for 5 after gangling fast-medium bowler Jason Holder had wrecked the top order in finishing with the outstanding figures of four for 13.
