Pakistan’s left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi uploaded a video on social media where he could be seen warming up in nets with an intense bowling session. The ace pacer, who continues to recover from a knee injury, looked in good rhythm while bowling in the nets. Shaheen last played a match for Pakistan on 13th November 2022. It was the final of the T20 World Cup. First, was the knee injury trouble, and days later he underwent an appendectomy and has remained out of action since then. However, the recent video uploaded by the player indicates that his return to competitive cricket is really close.
Shaheen Aridi was recently involved in a controversy after he deleted his tweet backing Pakistan captain Babar Azam in December last year. As Babar Azam received widespread criticism post-England clean swept Pakistan 3-0 in a Test series, Shaheen posted a tweet to back him.
“Babar Azam hamari or Pakistan ki Shan, jaan or pehchan hai. Wo Hamara kaptaan hai or rahe ga. Kuch or #sochnabhimanah hai. Please support this team. Yahi team hame jitaye gi bhi. Kahani abhi Khatam nahi howi. #Respect,” Shaheen had written on the microblogging site.
