ISLAMABAD: Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi might not be able to participate in the opening Test of the three-match series against England which is set to start on December 1 at the Pindi Cricket Stadium, sources said.
Shaheen’s right knee injury re-emerged during the T20 World Cup final on Sunday after he “landed awkwardly” during the match and couldn’t continue his over.
â€œThe same right knee which troubled him of late hit the ground when he took Brookâ€™s catch. It definitely is a sort of recurrence of the same injury. The seriousness of his injury is yet to be determined. The team management has decided to judge the seriousness of his injury on the teamâ€™s return to Pakistan,” a team management official told the publication.
“Now we are on our way to Pakistan and have no time left to form a panel of doctors to look into the seriousness of Shaheenâ€™s injury in Australia. A panel of doctors will look into his status on the teamâ€™s return to Pakistan and a further update will be available once they go through all the tests.”
