The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued a statement in response to Shahid Afridi’s statement regarding Shaheen Afridi’s medical and rehabilitation arrangements in London, England.
The cricket board’s spokesperson clarified in a statement that they make all arrangements for the players because it is the board’s responsibility to look after them.
The former captain revealed yesterday that the cricket board did not support Shaheen Shah Afridi’s rehab in London, and that the 21-year-old has made the majority of the arrangements on his own.
It should be noted that Shaheen was injured during the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle, forcing him to miss the recently concluded Asia Cup as well as the upcoming T20I series against England.
Despite the fact that he is not a member of the squad, Shaheen stayed with the team in Dubai during the Asia Cup to assist him under medical supervision. He was later transferred to England for additional treatment.
The pacer, on the other hand, has been added to the squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 and will be joining the national team there.
Meanwhile, the cricket board announced that left-handed opener Fakhar Zaman will fly to England on Friday for medical treatment after suffering a knee injury against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final.
