New Delhi: Pakistan’s star fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has reached the hospital after the T20 World Cup. Shaheen said on Sunday that he had undergone an appendectomy operation. The player took to Twitter to update his fans about the surgery and said that he is feeling better now. Shaheen wrote, “Appendix operation done today, but Alhamdulillah feeling better. Remember me in your prayers.
Rehab has been advised
Earlier on November 14, the Pakistan Cricket Board had advised Shaheen for two weeks of rehab. Shaheen was injured while taking the catch of Harry Brook during the T20 World Cup 2022 final in Melbourne on Sunday.
The PCB said- “The scans done on Monday morning before the team left for Pakistan confirmed that Shaheen had no signs of injury. Due to the forced bending of the knee, he may have a problem in his knee. “The scan was discussed between PCB Chief Medical Officer Dr Najibullah Soomro and Australian expert Dr Peter D’Alessandro. Although the good thing is that he is not seriously injured. The left-arm fast bowler is feeling better and in good spirits.
Medical staff will decide on return
The PCB has also said that the return of the left-arm pacer to the cricket field will be decided by the medical staff. The release further added that “a few days after his return to Pakistan, Shaheen will undergo a rehab and conditioning program designed to strengthen his knee at the National High Performance Centre.”
Shaheen’s return to international cricket will depend on the successful completion of the rehabilitation program and clearance from the medical staff. It is to be noted that Pakistan’s next international assignment is a three-match Test series against England on home soil, starting on December 1.
