Pakistani Shaheen Afridi gives important update on his comeback in T20 World Cup 2022


New Delhi: Pakistani star player Shaheen Shah Afridi said he can’t wait any longer to join his national team for the 2022 T20 World Championship in Australia. Afridi will join the Pakistani squad for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Brisbane on October 15, after completing his rehabilitation. According to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Shaheen will be available for selection in the warm-up matches against England and Afghanistan on October 17 and 19.

“I am super excited about the prospect of rejoining the national team for the T20 World Cup and playing my part in the campaign,” Shaheen said by ICC. “It’s been a difficult period for me to be away from the game and the team I love most, and not to be part of some grueling and exciting matches.

“I’ve bowled six to eight overs with full lead and pace in the last 10 days with no problems. While I enjoyed bowling and hitting the nets, nothing can replace the feeling of a competitive environment and I can’t wait to be in that setting.

“It was a rigorous and challenging rehabilitation program, but I enjoyed it immensely. To be honest, I feel fitter than ever before and can’t wait to wear the kit.”

Shaheen was in rehab at the Crystal Palace Football Club in London under the supervision of PCB. He had injured his right knee during the Test series played between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in July. This also banned him from the 2022 Asia Cup. The PCB’s medical team and management will assess Afridi’s competitive fitness during the two warm-up matches in Australia.
