|Shahid Afridi is desperate not to end up on the losing side for the third time in a row when he turns out for Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2009 final at Lord's on Sunday.
Afridi still remembers the hurt he felt as a teenager 10 years ago when his team was mauled by Steve Waugh's all-conquering Australia in the World Cup final at the same venue in 1999.
The pain returned two years ago when India won the inaugural World Twenty20 title with a five-run win over Pakistan the final in Johannesburg, even though Afridi was named the most valuable player of the tournament.
Afridi is the prodigal cricketer who does the unexpected and is never to be underestimated. Get all the individual T20 world cup 2009 Records in batting, top bowling performance, best fielding performance, most sixes in ICC 20-20, etc on Indyalive.
