The Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Afridi came to social media on Sunday to reveal that he had an appendectomy earlier in the day. When Shaheen landed awkwardly at the T20 World Cup final earlier this month, he ended up hurting his knee, which required surgery.
The scrawny pacer, on the other hand, reported that he was recovering well from the operation and requested that everyone say prayers for him. “Had an appendectomy today but, praise be to Allah, I’m feeling much better.
“Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers,”Shaheen Afridi wrote as the caption for a tweet she had posted. Appendix removal is a key part of the surgical procedure known as appendectomy.
Shaheen was advised to undergo a two-week recovery term after suffering a knee injury during the final of the Twenty20 World Cup.
“Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has been advised two-week rehabilitation after he landed awkwardly while taking Harry Brook’s catch during Sunday’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final in Melbourne,” the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement. “The injury occurred while he was taking Brook’s catch during the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Melbourne.”
“The scan that was performed on Monday morning, before to the team’s departure for Pakistan, has confirmed that there were no evidence of an injury. The knee soreness was likely ‘related to a forceful knee flexion during landing,'” according to the results of the scan.
Afridi had previously sustained a ligament damage in his right knee in July while playing a Test match against Sri Lanka. Despite this, he was able to make it onto the team that competed in the T20 extravaganza.
“The scans were analysed between Dr. Najeebullah Soomro, Chief Medical Officer of PCB, and Dr. Peter D’Alessandro, an Australian knee specialist, and it was relieving to hear that there was no harm.
The left-handed bowler with the rapid left arm is doing much better physically and mentally.
A few days after his return to Pakistan, Shaheen will travel to Pakistan’s National High Performance Centre to participate in a knee-strengthening rehabilitation and conditioning programme that has been specifically devised for him.
It is highly possible that Afridi will be unable to participate in the home Test series against England and New Zealand in December and January. During the T20 World Cup, Afridi got 11 wickets in seven matches.
According to a statement made by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), “Shaheen’s comeback to international cricket will be contingent upon the champion fast bowler successfully completing the rehabilitation programme and following go-aheads by the medical team.”
Despite having a difficult time during the group round of the competition, Shaheen finished the tournament with 11 wickets for Pakistan.
