Former Pakistani captain on Shaheen Afridi’s injury: “Told Him Not To Dive”
During a Twitter Q&A, Shahid Afridi, a former Pakistani captain, was asked about Shaheen’s wounds.
Pakistan’s star pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi was forced to leave the team on Saturday due to injury before the Asia Cup 2022. The 22-year-old has been told to rest for 4-6 weeks, so he will miss the Asia Cup and his country’s series against England. During a Twitter Q&A, Shahid Afridi, a former Pakistani captain, was asked about Shaheen’s wounds. Additionally, the fan requested that Shahid Afridi delay his retirement because to Shaheen’s ongoing injury.
As a quick bowler, Mene us ko pehle b mana Kia tha k dive mat maray, injury hosakti hai. Lekin terrible me mene hi hai when it comes to comprehending Afridi (I previously advised him to avoid diving as it might lead to injury and you are a quick bowler). But a tweet from a former Pakistani captain afterwards informed me that he is also an Afridi.3

The ligaments in Shaheen’s right knee were injured during the first Test match between Sri Lanka and India in Galle. Shaheen was a left-arm bowler who played fielding.
Shaheen’s disappointment over the news is therefore understandable. He is a courageous young guy, though, and he has pledged to bounce back even stronger to support his nation and team. According to Dr. Najeebullah Soomro, Chief Medical Officer of PCB.
A notable example is Shaheen, who was named men’s cricketer of the year in 2021 after capturing 78 wickets in 36 international matches of all formats.
On their Asia Cup squad, Pakistan has not yet named a substitute for Shaheen Afridi.
even if they didn’t participate in any of the games. During the just finished ODI series in the Netherlands, he was a member of the Pakistani team.
On August 28 in Dubai, Pakistan will face off against India, a rivalry that dates back many years.
