India vs Pakistan LIVE: Major BLOW for Pakistan, India’s nemesis Shaheen Afridi RULED OUT of Asia Cup 2022 with knee injury, Follow Live Updates

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday confirmed that Shaheen Afridi was ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 and the upcoming series against England. The 21-year-old suffered a right knee ligament injury during Pakistan’s win in Galle last month. Afridi has been advised 4-6 weeks of rest by PCB’s advisory committee and independent specialists.  He is expected to return to competitive cricket in October before the T20 World Cup in Australia.

India vs Pakistan LIVE – Asia Cup Cricket LIVE: Shaheen Afridi ruled out

In a statement, the PCB Chief Medical Officer, Dr Najeebullah Soomro said, “I have spoken with Shaheen and he is understandably upset with the news, but he is brave young man who has vowed to come back strongly to serve his country and team. Although he has made progress during his rehabilitation in Rotterdam, it is now clear he will require more time and is likely to return to competitive cricket in October.”

“PCB’s Sports & Exercise Medicine Department will be working closely with the player over the coming weeks to ensure his safe return to competitive cricket.”

The news comes up as a big thumbs up to Team India who struggled to deal with Shaheen’s pace and accuracy in the last meeting between the two teams. Afridi had dismissed both Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma cheaply and then got the wicket of then captain Virat Kohli. Pakistan had then romped to a 10-wicket win, their first against India in World Cups.

Despite being ruled out, Shaheen Afridi will stay with the squad to complete his rehabilitation. His replacement for the Asia Cup will be announced in the meantime. The Pakistan side will arrive in Dubai from Rotterdam on Monday.
