Former veteran all-rounder Shahid Afridi has given a big reaction to the injury of Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi. According to Shahid Afridi, he had told Shaheen Afridi not to dive because it could make him a victim of injury, but he did not agree.
In fact, Shaheen Afridi has been ruled out of the upcoming Asia Cup and the home series against England due to non-recovery from a knee injury. Afridi injured his right knee while fielding in the first Test against Sri Lanka in July and has been out of action since then. According to the PCB, he is expected to return to action in the T20 tri-series in New Zealand, which also includes Bangladesh. This series is 16 days before Pakistan’s match against India in the T20 World Cup. It will be interesting to see how long they can come back.

Shahid Afridi’s reaction to Shaheen Afridi’s injury
Shahid Afridi reacted to Shaheen’s injury during a question-and-answer session on Twitter. A fan told him, ‘Shaheen has become a victim of injury. You come back from retirement.
To this Shahid Afridi replied ‘I had already told him not to dive, there may be injury because you are a fast bowler. But later I realized that he is also Afridi.
Significantly, the match between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup is to be held on August 28. In such a situation, it can be said that Afridi’s exit is not good news for the Pakistan team from anywhere. Indian team’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has also been ruled out of this tournament.
