Pakistan on Sunday June 21, 2009 celebrated one of their greatest cricketing moments when Younis Khan lifted the World Twenty20 trophy at Lordís after marching to an eight-wicket triumph over Sri Lanka in the final.

Shahid Afridi hit a career-best 54 off 40 balls, playing the lead role in an unbeaten third wicket stand of 76 with Shoaib Malik to hand Pakistan a dream victory ó their best on the cricket field since the 1992 World Cup win.

Meanwhile, the officials of International Cricket Council (ICC) conducted surprise dope test of Shahid Afridi at the end of T20 World Cup, saying the test was a part of ICC routine and any player could be call for the test.

Questions are:
  • Was Shahid Afridi already on the list of ICC suspected players?
  • Before T20 WC Tournament, PCB filed a case on ICC for not consulting its venue for Mega event World Cup. Is it a response in connection to this case that filed by PCB on ICC?

    Afridi has the potential

    It would not be appropriate to call for any tests/checks after the match. Afridi is a great player and I personally admire him for his skill and ability to perform. This way or that way the end result is "Pakistan is a T20 Champion" Out of all odds you have proven it. Hats off to your team.
