Shahid Afridi could not bowl his entire over
Actually, Shaheen Afridi had come to throw the 16th over. He bowled a ball and then he returned to the pavilion. This happened because he injured his knee once again while taking the catch of Harry Brooke in the 13th over. His treatment also went on by staying out of the field for about 10 minutes. He had two overs left in his quota. In such a situation, he came on the field to bowl the 16th over. Here as soon as he bowled a ball, he felt pain in his knee and left the field. Iftikhar Ahmed bowled the remaining 5 balls of this over of Afridi. 15 runs came off these 5 balls and the match slipped from the hands of Pakistan.
