India vs Pakistan: Team India prays for Shaheen Afridi’s recovery, Kohli-Pant know the situation, see VIDEO

New Delhi. The blockbuster match between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 is to be played on August 28 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Both the teams are practicing in Dubai. Jasprit Bumrah and Shaheen Shah Afridi will not be seen in the cricket battle between India and Pakistan. At present, Bumrah-Afridi, one of the deadliest fast bowlers in the world in all three formats, is injured. Afridi is currently in Dubai with the Pakistan team. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) shared a video of Shaheen Afridi in which Virat Kohli, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul are knowing his well being.

In the video, injured Shaheen Shah Afridi is seen sitting outside the practice ground. Meanwhile, he stands up to see India’s star leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and joins him. Chahal also hugs happily while taking their well being. After this Virat Kohli, Pant and Rahul also came to know about Afridi’s condition.

When Yuzvendra Chahal asked Afridi how he got hurt, Afridi told that he will be fine before the T20 World Cup. Afridi injured his right knee while fielding during the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle last month. This injury has not yet healed. The medical team has advised Shaheen to take rest for 4 to 6 weeks.

Mohammad Hasnain replaces Shaheen Shah Afridi
Pakistan’s rising fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain has replaced Shaheen Shah Afridi in the Pakistan team for the Asia Cup. Shaheen will also not be able to play the home T20 series against England. Shaheen will return to the team from the New Zealand tri-series in October ahead of the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia.

22-year-old Mohammad Hasnain has participated in 18 T20 International matches for Pakistan. He has 17 wickets in his name. At the same time, Shaheen Shah Afridi has taken 47 wickets in 40 matches for Pakistan in his short career. Last year in the T20 World Cup, it was due to Afridi’s bowling that Pakistan’s team was successful in registering a win by 10 wickets. Afridi took the wickets of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli.
