“Remember me in your prayers”: Shaheen Afridi gives update after appendectomy | Cricket news


Pakistani pacemaker Shaheen Afridi took to social media on Sunday to announce he had undergone appendectomy. Shaheen had injured his knee after a clumsy landing earlier this month at the T20 World Cup final. However, the lanky pacesetter said he felt better after the operation and urged everyone to pray for him. “Had an appendectomy today but Alhumdulillah is feeling better. Please remember me in your prayers,” Shaheen wrote in a post on Twitter. Appendectomy specifically involves removing the appendix.

After injuring his knee during the T20 World Cup final, Shaheen was advised to have two weeks of rehabilitation.

“Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has been given two weeks of rehabilitation after he landed awkwardly while taking the catch from Harry Brook during the final of the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Melbourne,” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement. .

“The scan performed on Monday morning prior to the team’s departure to Pakistan confirmed that there were no signs of injury and that the knee discomfort was likely ‘due to forced knee flexion during landing’.” Afridi had suffered a ligament injury in his right knee during a test match against Sri Lanka earlier in July but had managed to make the team for the T20 showpiece.
