This update came on Shaheen’s injury
PCB Chief Medical Officer Dr. Najibullah Soumro and Australia’s Knee Specialist Dr. Peter de Alessandro have informed about Shaheen Afridi’s injury and advised him to undergo rehabilitation for the next two weeks. According to the information received from both the doctors, at present, after the scan, positive news came out that there was no new injury in his knees. Rather, his pain had emerged due to sitting on his knee while taking the catch. However, it was the crucial moment of the match where Afridi’s last 12 deliveries were crucial. This could be the reason that England won the match in 19 overs.
Afridi has been advised rehabilitation for the next two weeks. During this time he will also undergo conditioning to overcome the problem of his knees. Significantly, before the World Cup, Shaheen Afridi was constantly out of the Pakistani team and he was going through recovery mode. He was not part of the team even in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022. Shaheen, who was seen ineffective in the opening few matches of the World Cup, got his momentum back from the match against Bangladesh and took a total of 11 wickets in the tournament. He was also the highest wicket-taker Pakistani bowler in the tournament.
