As described earlier, there have been many moments at Sharjah. Afridi’s long sixes to earn the prize if the ball hits the board, crunch matches but the memory that will always be in my brain goes back to 1999. It was a group stage match against Srilanka and they were well on top. But as it is said ‘Pakistan never do it the easy way’, they proved it. The young Abdur Razzaq saved the match for Pakistan. Re live those moments here.
I still remember that I was screaming my heart out after that last wicket and nobody cared about it. I usually watched Cricket matches with my father but he was not there at that moment.
Sharjah was regarded as ‘Second home of Pakistan Cricket Team’. Lets just hope that current Pakistani team remember the history of Sharjah and wrap up the series against Srilanka today in an emphatic way.
