The Pakistani star took to Twitter and said that it was an ‘unplayable yorker’ and urged Rauf, in jest, to bowl him ‘slow’ next time.

"It was a great and unplayable yorker Haris very well bowled! Please bowl slow to me next time,” Afridi wrote while sharing Rauf’s interview to Espncricinfo.

Earlier, Rauf had apologized to Afridi after dismissing his wicket. The incident soon became a trending topic on internet. Qalandars’ bowler, however, said that the gesture was not him apologizing but an act of respect as he really admires the senior player.

The former skipper also congratulated the opponent team on qualifying for the final and thanked fans for supporting Sultans throughout the season.

"Congratulations to Qalandars for [the] final berth. Look forward to an exciting match tomorrow. Thank you Sultans fans for supporting us throughout the season," Afridi added.
