Star all-rounder Shahid Afridi has been ruled out of the upcoming Abu Dhabi leg of the Pakistan Super League due to a back injury. Shahid has been replaced by left-arm-spinner Asif Afridi who would be joining the Multan squad in Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan T20 league will resume in Abu Dhabi next month after it was postponed in March with 20 games to go when several players and support staff among the six franchises tested positive for COVID-19.

Afridi represented Multan Sultans in four of its five league games

at Karachi, scoring just three runs in two innings and picking up two wickets from 15 overs. Afridi experienced pain in his lower back during training in Karachi. He was examined by a doctor, who prescribed a period of complete rest.

“Unfortunately, I have been advised to rest and can no longer accompany my team Multan Sultans,” Afridi said in a statement.

“I am disappointed that I would be sitting out of the tournament, but my best wishes, support and prayers are with the team to take the trophy.”
