ICC Champions Trophy: India Pakistan match failed to generate excitement, says Afridi
India-Pakistan match failed to generate excitement says Shahid Afridi. Shahid Afridi was appalled by Pakistan's abject surrender but he credited India for their commanding show, saying the defending champions lived upto the favourites tag in their Champions Trophy opener. Afridi, a former Pakistan captain, said his country's drab show last night took away all the excitement from what was expected to be a high-voltage Group B encounter. Afridi said, "India started as the favourite and played the entire game in the same frame of mind, even as Pakistan crumbled limply."
