‘Shaheen Afridi Paying For His Own Recovery,’ Says Shahid Afridi PCB Hasn’t Done Anything

Shaheen Afridi Recovery

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), announced the 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup on Thursday. Shaheen Afridi, one of the best fast bowlers in the world, returned to the Pakistan team squad for the T20 WC 2022. 

The injury occurred to the young left-arm bowler in a July Test match against Sri Lanka. Due to a knee injury, the left-arm pacer missed the Asia Cup 2022, and there had been questions about whether he would play in the coveted international competition.

As per the recent development, according to former skipper Shahid Afridi, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has not assisted fast bowler Shaheen Afridi in his ongoing recovery.

Speaking on Samaa TV, he stated that the pacer is paying for his own recovery in England and has not received any financial assistance from the board.

Furthermore, Afridi said the PCB hadn’t even set up a doctor for the renowned bowler. 

He said, “Shaheen Afridi is paying for his rehabilitation himself in England. The PCB hasn’t done anything. I arranged a doctor for him, and then he contacted the doctor when he landed there.

“From the coordination to his accommodation, he is doing everything on his own. Zakir Khan spoke to him just once or twice.”
