This is extraordinary from boom boom!! @NatWestT20Blast @SAfridiOfficial — Aaron Finch (@AaronFinch5) August 22, 2017Afridi's previous high score in the competition this season was 18 but he pulled Ben Cotton for six before driving him over the top of the three-storey media centre. He reached his fifty off only 20 balls with a top-edged six but after driving Imran Tahir for another huge six, he was dropped on 65 at long-on by Madsen.
It proved expensive as Afridi dispatched Matt Critchley and Tahir for two more sixes on his way to a blistering hundred before he top-edged another big pull and was caught at long-leg. BRIEF SCORE Derbyshire 148 in 19.5 overs (Abbott 3/25, Dawson 3/28) lost to Hampshire (Afridi 101, Vince 55) by 101 runs
