New Delhi: Batting Legend Sachin Tendulkar had made a prediction regarding Australia skipper Aaron Finch’s way of getting out, ahead of the second semi-final between Pakistan and Australia in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. Popularly known as the ‘God of Cricket’ among cricketing fans, Sachin’s prediction was spot on.
Ahead of the Pak vs Aus T20 WC match, Sachin has posted a video on Instagram in which he had said that he would like to see a contest between Pakistani speedster Shaheen Shah Afridi and Australian captain Aaron Finch. The legend went on to predict that if Aaron Finch tries to play Afridi across the line early in the innings, he’ll get either LBW out or clean bowled.
Sachin’s prediction turned out to be absolutely correct as when the Australian team came out to bat, Afridi got Finch LBW out on the very second ball of Australia’s innings as the Aussie skipper had to return back to the pavilion for a duck. Finch tried to play Afridi’s delivery across the line and the ball went straight onto his pads.

Batting first, Pakistan scored 177/4, which Australia chased down with one over remaining. Australia’s Matthew Wade, hit Shahhen Afridi for three consecutive sixes in the 19th over to seal the win for his team and keep alive their unbeaten record of never losing to Pakistan in knockout matches of ICC tournaments.
