After suffering a knee injury while playing for Pakistan in the t20 World Cup final against England in Melbourne, pace spearhead Shaheen Shah Afridi was given a two-week rehabilitation term to recover from the injury. During the 13th over of England’s chase, the 22-year-old was attempting to take a catch of an English batter named Harry Brook when he once again injured his right knee. As a result, he was forced to leave the field.

Shaheen Afridi has been recommended two-week rehabilitation
According to a statement released by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), “Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen after he landed awkwardly while taking Harry Brook’s catch during Sunday’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final 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. Shaheen Shah 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.
Shaheen Shah Afridi had gone back out onto the field on Sunday, when he attempted to bowl the 16th over but was unable to finish it.
“The scans were analyzed 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 program 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 program and following go-aheads by the medical team.”
Iftikhar Ahmed, who had completed his over, gave up a four and a six as England chased the mark down with six balls to spare because Afridi had suffered an injury, which was a pivotal point in the championship match.
