Ace Pakistani Shaheen Afridi recently returned to training as he tries to recover from the injury that kept him out of action for several months. [WATCH] Shahid Afridi smashes Shaheen during PSL practice.
The speedster with the left arm has been plagued by injuries for quite some time. He was rushed back into action during the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia, aggravated his injury, and he missed the Asia Cup 2022.
In the final against England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Shaheen landed awkwardly while taking Harry Brooks’s catch, resulting in a knee injury. The pacer came back to bowl in the match’s 16th over, but after the first delivery, the unbearable pain forced him to leave.
However, he has resumed training in preparation for his return to competitive cricket in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) season. The left-arm pacer was seen bowling to former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi in an open-net practice session in a video that has gone viral on social media.
The ball was smashed over the midfielder by Shahid, the interim selection committee’s chairman at the moment. Watch the video below:
The Lahore Qalandars will be led by Shaheen in the upcoming PSL season, which begins later this month. Lahore, Karachi, Multan, and Rawalpindi are the four locations where the tournament will take place.
Shaheen Afridi on missing the time because of injuries Since he started playing international cricket, Afridi has had a few injuries. The tall fast bowler recently said that his rehabilitation is going well and that it was hard for him to watch the game from the sidelines.
Shaheen said that “The process is going well. The medical team did a good job. I’m 100% fit and feeling much better. Sitting out was difficult at the time.”
Given that India is scheduled to host the One-Day International World Cup later this year, he will hope to fully recover before returning to action.
