Shaheen Afridi: Pakistani bowler, who caused havoc against India in T20 World Cup, suspected to play in Asia Cup

New Delhi: Asia Cup 2022 is starting from August 27 this month. The first encounter of the Indian team in the tournament is to be with Pakistan. The eyes of the whole world must have been on this great match played between the two teams. However, before this, the Pakistani team seems to be facing a major setback. Team’s star fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi is considered suspicious to play against India. Afridi was injured during the recent Sri Lanka tour. Due to this he could not even play in the second match of the Test series.

At the same time, before the Asia Cup, Pakistan’s team is on a tour of Netherlands. Pakistan has to play a three-match ODI series against the Netherlands, which will start on August 16. The last match of the series will be played on August 21. Here the team will directly reach the UAE for the Asia Cup. In such a situation, the Pakistani team management can rest Afridi against the Netherlands.

However, team captain Babar Azam has given an update on Afridi’s fitness, saying that he will accompany the team to the Netherlands tour so that he remains under the supervision of doctors. During this, if he becomes fit, then he can take the field in the match against the Netherlands. On the other hand, Babar Azam believes that he does not want to take any risk with Afridi.

Babar Azam said that Shaheen Afridi is currently one of the best fast bowlers in the world. We have plans for them for a long time. After the Asia Cup, the team has to prepare for the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, we do not want to take any risk of anyone regarding their fitness.

Afridi shines in T20 World Cup against India

Shaheen Afridi can be considered one of the biggest challenges for India against Pakistan in the Asia Cup. Afridi had a great performance with his bowling in the T20 World Cup 2021 against India. Afridi has completely shaken the top order against India in the T20 World Cup. In the match, he took the wickets of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. In such a situation, the Indian team will have to take full control against Pakistan in the Asia Cup.
