Be Afridi, be very Afridi

That's Shahid Afridi in the middle of the picture. Come Sunday, you might want to remember that name. You might also want to remember the numbers he put up against a South African team that was 5-0 in this tournament, and had been making teams look very very bad for the past two weeks:
51 runs off 34 balls (8 x 4, 0 x 6)
4 overs bowled, 16 runs allowed, 2 wickets.
Afridi does not really need me to sing his praises (he's got his unoffical Youtube fan club for that). But whoever wins today between Sri Lanka and the West Indies had better come full force on the 21st if they want to put up any serious contention against the man who knows this title is his for the taking.
I'll have my thoughts on WI-SL after it's over, but we all know to say Go Windies!
and since I don't have anywhere else to put it, here's a great song to get you amped up for the game:
