Mathhew Wade talks about Shaheen Shah Afridi’s 19th over

Goalkeeper batter Matthew Wade thought the T20 World Cup semi-final against Pakistan would likely be his last chance to represent Australia, but managed to lead his team to the final with an undefeated 41.

“Man of the match” Wade played this inning on 17 balls against Pakistan on Thursday and played a key role in Australia’s five-wicket victory. “I was a bit nervous before the game and I knew this could be my last chance to represent Australia,” Wade said at a post-game press conference.

He said: “I just wanted to do well and I really want to win this match so that we have a chance to win the tournament. The final may also be my last match. As I have said in the past, I am comfortable with that one.”

Australia needed 62 runs on 30 balls to win. Wade gave the team victory by hitting three consecutive sixes in Shaheen Shah Afridi’s 19th over. When asked if he was targeting Afridi, who is considered the best T20 pitcher, Wade said: “To be honest, we didn’t target him. Marcus Stoinis played a brilliant inning that made us think that in the end, we will achieve this goal.”

“I think the way he (Stoinis) played has made me feel comfortable playing the way I want to. We don’t go out on the field thinking about targeting a pitcher. He (Afridi) is brilliant. There are bowlers and I could have been lucky today. “

Wade’s international career seemed to have ended only after he was removed from the team before the 2017-18 Ashes. The 33-year-old had not played a single T20 international match in three years.
