Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has been advised two weeks of rehabilitation after taking an awkward fall while taking a catch off Harry Brook during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final in Melbourne on Sunday, the PCB said in a statement. It has also been said in this statement that no signs of injury have been found to Shaheen Afridi.
The PCB said Shaheen will undergo a rehabilitation and conditioning program at the National High Performance Center a few days after his return to Pakistan, which has been designed to strengthen his knee. The PCB said the fast bowler’s return to international cricket will be subject to completion of the rehabilitation program and clearance from the medical staff.
Significantly, in the final match against England, Afridi bowled two overs well. He then found himself in trouble during the catch.
