Shahid Afridi likely to miss World XI charity match


Shahid Afridi is likely to miss the charity match featuring the World XI and the West Indies on May 31 as the former Pakistan captain is yet to recover fully from a knee injury.

During the last edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL), Afridi was forced to be out of action due to the knee injury after helping his side Karachi Kings to three consecutive wins.

In his recent tweet, he updated his fans about the injury.

“Went to see my doctor in Dubai, the knee hasnt recovered fully yet. I’ll need another 3-4 weeks. Hoping to regain full fitness after that, keep praying for me,” he wrote.

The charity match, being held to raise funds for the reconstruction of the venues in the Caribbean islands that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year, is scheduled to be held two weeks from now. Afridi looks certain to miss the clash.
