PCB provide update on Shaheen Afridi’s injury on Nov 14
Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi, who walked off injured during the T20 World Cup final against England, had a scan conducted on his knee on Monday and PCB provided an update on his injury situation.
Shaheen has been advised two weeks of rehabilitation following an injury to his knee while landing awkwardly during the catch he took to dismiss Harry brook in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final in Melbourne. In some positive news, scans confirmed there were no signs of an injury to his knee.
The knee discomfort that led to him walking off at a crucial juncture in the final was possibly “due to a forced knee flexion whilst landing” according to PCB’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Najeebullah Soomro, and Australian knee specialist, Dr Peter D’Alessandro.
Shaheen will undergo rehabilitation and conditioning programme to strengthen his knee back in Pakistan once he returns with the team.
