Shaheen Afridi has been ruled out from the upcoming Asia Cup 2022, which can only be described as an unexpected blow for Team Pakistan. During the first Test match against Sri Lanka in Galle, the left-arm quick, who has been leading the nation's bowling attack for some time, suffered a knee ligament injury while fielding. He'll be out of action for a while as a result of this.
Following the most recent scans and reports, the PCB Medical Advisory Committee and independent physicians have reportedly urged the pacer to take four to six weeks rest. He will therefore be absent from the Asia Cup as well as the historic home series versus England the following month. The New Zealand T20I tri-series in October is where he is anticipated to make his comeback.
Additionally, it is a fantastic chance for players like Mohammad Wasim Jr., Naseem Shah, and Shahnawaz Dahani to put on a strong performance and stake their claims to a spot in Pakistan's T20 World Cup squad. The campaign for the Babar Azam-led team against India will begin on August 28.
