Sri Lanka Vs Afghanistan: Flood of runs.. Number of fours. Massacre of sixes. No matter how many times you use it, you will not get ahead of this match. If the players of one team ran away, the players of the other team fought till the end to reach the target. After seeing the performance of the players of those two teams, “anything happens in cricket..anyway it happens..if it happens then it becomes cricket”. I remember Kapil Dev's comments in the past days.
