Image: Much will be expected of all-rounder Abdul Razzaq
Yesterday, Pakistan had a batting collapse with opener Khalid Latif, Mohammad Hafeez, Afridi and Umar Akmal all managing single digit scores. Senior player Abdul Razzaq also managed just two runs as they folded for 131 chasing Zimbabwe's 143 in 20 overs.
Afridi will have to make sure that this defeat doesn't dent the team's morale and has no bearing in tomorrow's clash against Bangladesh.
Although failing with the bat, Afridi at least picked up four wickets against Zimbabwe with his leg-spin and it will boost his confidence which may reflect positively in his captaincy tomorrow.
