PCB disgraced the great player of Shahid Afridi to get retirement from the international cricket and he was deprived off the farewell match but the players of other countries saw him off from the international cricket. When the Pakistani all rounder entered in the ground to play the last international match, then the players of the World XI gave him the guard of honor. Due to injury in the knee, Shahid Afridi was limping and he did his batting and bowling with great difficulty. He got one wicket and also made 11 runs. On his bravery, the cricket fans gave him tremendous applauds.

Shahid Afridi said that he is lucky that he was going to play the last match of his career in the home of cricket and he paid thank to Andy Flower and the English Cricket Board. He said that he was way from cricket because of knee injury and it seeded very strange for him to hold the bat again and bowl but he did it for a big and noble cause.
