The best thing about T20 cricket is that it brings you the best of the international players. Most of the times you will see national teammates contesting against each other. This has spiced up cricket and this is the reason fans are more attracted towards T20 cricket.

Like many other players the Pakistani cricketers are often seen playing these T20 leagues cricket. There are a few of them who have a huge reputation in the T20 cricket world. These Pakistani players are always seen getting into different T20 leagues.

The likes of Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir and a few more are almost he permanent members of such leagues. One of these leagues is the Caribbean Premier League. CPL has most of the West Indies cricketers.

Here we have Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik contesting against each other in one of the CPL games. Malik won the first round when he bashed Afridi for a straight six and this was a massive hit from the Pakistani all-rounder.

Malik went down the track on this ball and did not let Afridi spin the ball. Once Malik killed the spin on this one it became easy for him to dispatch the ball straight over long on. There was a huge appreciation seen for Malik from his team mates and the crowd.

Indeed it was a brilliant hit. But immediately after this ball, Afridi won the second and final round when he took out Malik on a beauty. Afridi himself is an experienced player and he immediately tangled Malik with one of his leg spinner.

Malik once again tried to play the same shot. He danced down the track but this time Afridi was ready. He bowled this one slower through the air and a bit wider outside the off stump. Malik got it difficult to get the ball in his range. He tried to play this ball but he just was not there. The ball went under his bat and the wicket keeper took no time to pull off the bails. That was it as Afridi had the last laugh.
