Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi out of 2nd test with knee injury

2022 Jul 22, 11:25, Sri Lanka

Pakistan’s first-test star fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has a bruised knee and won’t play in the second cricket test against Sri Lanka starting Sunday.

The 22-year-old Afridi was the pick of the seamers from either side in the first test, finishing with four wickets in the first innings that Pakistan won by four wickets in Galle.

Pakistan team officials confirmed Friday that he would not play in the second test. Afridi finished on 99 test wickets at the end of Sri Lanka’s first innings and hopes of him completing the milestone of 100 wickets in the second test ended with the injury.

Pakistan has uncapped quick Harris Rauf or seam bowling all-rounder Faheem Ashraf as replacements.
