The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tournament is just a few days away from getting started, and Pakistan is about to give another new update after releasing their squad.
Shaheen Shah Afridi was ruled out of the squad due to a physical injury, but it is reported that he will return soon and will be included in the Pakistan squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia before the warm-up matches begin.
Shaheen Afridi will join the Pakistan squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia after going through his rehabilitation process under the patronage of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Medical Advisory Committee.
Afridi will be available for selection for the warm-up matches against England and Afghanistan in October 17 and 19, 2022.
“I am super excited at the prospect of rejoining the national side for the T20 World Cup and playing my part in the campaign,” Shaheen said. “It has been a difficult period for me to be away from the game and the team I love the most, and not be part of some gruelling and exciting matches.
“I have been bowling six to eight overs trouble-free for the past 10 days with full run-up and pace. While I have enjoyed bowling and batting in the nets, nothing can replace the feel of match environment and I can’t wait to be in that setting.
