Post-match comments from Afridi :
"First of all I'd like to congratulate the Indian cricket team and the Indian nation for this great victory, and wish them all the best fo the final"
"I want to say sorry to my nation. We tried our level best, and we enjoyed ourselves at this tournament"
My respect for him has sky-rocketed.
Made captain a few days before the tournament.
Led from the front, never cared about personal records, put the team above him, coalesced and cajoled a weak team, garnered the support from his men, rebounded from controversy, exhibited exuberance, uncomplaining about dropped catches off his bowling, gracious in defeat......
Afridi, a class act
