Aqib Javed attributes Shaheen Shah Afridi’s injury to a heavy workload.

The exertion may have caused bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi’s injury, according to Lahore Qalandars head coach Aqib Javed.

Afridi’s exclusion from the next Asia Cup 2022 was officially declared earlier today by the PCB, giving a significant blow to the Pakistani team who were counting on his bowling in the upcoming international competition.

When discussing Afridi’s dismissal, the former Test cricketer advised the team management to handle it slowly.

“Workload may be to blame. Shaheen has been actively participating in cricket. Undoubtedly, Pakistan would suffer a great loss before the Asia Cup, and the team will miss him “He said

“The patience of the team should be managed. Let Shaheen recover fully in this scenario and don’t panic. He still has a long career to go “Added he.

According to Javed, Indian batsmen have traditionally struggled against Pakistani left-arm bowlers. “Previously, left-arm pacers Amir and Shaheen consistently gave Indian batsmen a difficult time. We won the Champions Trophy in 2017 thanks to Amir, and the T20 World Cup in 2021 thanks to Shaheen “He underlined.

Atif Rana, CEO of Qalandars, made sure that the young pacer had complete support in the meanwhile. “We pray that Shaheen will recover quickly. Our champion skipper is always supported by Lahore Qalandars. We want to see him wearing a Pakistan shirt soon “added he.
