"Lala, why are you sad? What happened."
"My being sad is right or wrong? Was this a match we (Pakistan) should have lost?" Afridi replied.
"When we were left to score 40 runs, Yuvraj told me 'Lala, congratulations! I am leaving, won't watch the rest of the game'. I told him 'Yuvi, chaalis runs boht hain iss pitch pe. Itni jaldi mubarak baad na de mujhe (40 runs are a lot on this pitch, don't congratulate me so early)," the former Pakistan all-rounder went on to add.

Towards the end of the video, Yuvraj is heard telling Afridi that although he told the latter that Pakistan would win, he was confident of India fighting back.

"I told you Pakistan will win, but I was still confident that we (India) can win it from there. Winning and losing is part of the game, what's important is that our bonhomie should continue," Yuvraj concluded.

Pakistan lost Mohammad Rizwan (31 off 44) at the start of the 15th over. He was bowled by Jasprit Bumrah, attempting a wild heave. Shadab Khan (4), Iftikhar Ahmed (5), and Imad Wasim (15 off 23) also crumbled under pressure India strangled Pakistan in the chase.
