Many would have you believe that the sight of a topless Shahid Afridi wrapped up in a white towel was the moment to cherish from today's twenty20 match against Sri Lanka.
For all the female fans, it probably was.
For me however, the moment to cherish was when Shahid Afridi walked out for the toss.
In Pakistan's colors, in Pakistan's top job.
From calling right at the toss, to the knock he played, to the way he manoeuvered the field and the bowling changes, to the way he led his troops, Afridi did not put a foot wrong tonight.
In his very first match as Pakistan captain, Afridi was in command of everything he did.
He stabilized Pakistan's innings initially; then when the time was right, he broke loose and raced to his third consecutive 50 in Twenty20 Internationals.
He remained calm when Sri Lanka's openers started pounding Pakistan's bowling; more importantly he kept his men calm.
His field placing was immaculate, as were his bowling changes.
The match could not have ended without the world witnessing the one arm raised Afridi salute, so he gave us a wicket.
There was an apparent change in Pakistan's body language tonight; they looked confident; they were energetic; they batted aggressively but sensibly; they played with passion; they fielded with purpose.
What stood out was that they all responded to their captain, Shahid Afridi.
The end result was a thumping 52 run victory for Pakistan and a smashing start to Shahid Afridi's captaincy stint.
So where to from here then?
Afridi for ODI Captain? In time I believe.
For now though, I leave you with what one of my friends had as his facebook status update:
"Defending the T20 title in 8 months? I say bring it on!"
