Shaun Tait and Shahid Afridi met each other in the cricketing ground in the world cup and that moment was cherished by the whole crowd of the cricketing world. Australian fast bowler was not a bad bowler when it came to getting Yorkers. Shahid Afridi on the other hand had the thinking of dealing him in the world cup with only one way and that was hitting him out of the park on the first ball.
Speed of Shaun Tait was not less than Shoaib Akhtar who was the fastest bowler of the world. Shahid Afridi has been facing Shoaib Akhtar in the nets while preparing for the world cup so he had practiced against the pace bowling of that high speed. The bowler of Australia did try to York him out so that Shahid Afridi could miss and get bowled but that did not happen.
World cup match was very important for both the teams as it was a semi final that was played in West Indies. Pakistan did achieve a good total and had the chance to restrict the batsmen of Australia cricket team in the world cup but could not do so. One of their left hand batsmen Michael Hussy played a stunning innings that took the cup from the Pakistan cricket team.
Shaun Tait was not hit by any batsman for a huge six for the very first time. New Zealand former captain also played a wonderful shot against the second fastest bowler of the world cup who has not yet announced his retirement. However his career in the international and world matches has ended since Australia did not include him in the squad.
Shaun Tait versus Shahid Afridi battle was so much interesting for the whole country including the one that was hosting the world cup. The support for the cricket world cup was amazing and all the fans wanted to see Shahid Afridi batting versus the famous fast bowler of Australia again.
