Shahid Afridi’s inclusion in the PSL doubtful

Shahid Khan Afridi, the star all-rounder, has asked Quetta Gladiators, where he plays franchise cricket, to permit him to leave the bio-secure bubble.

The fan favourite star notified the management of the franchise that he has been troubled by a back spasm. His sister-in-law has also passed away according to a spokesperson from the management.

“Shahid Afridi’s children are alone at home, and due to these reasons, he wants to pull out from the bio-secure bubble,” he said.
The former Pakistani skipper, however, is yet to depart from his hotel, where he has been placed for a spell of mandatory quarantine.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has stated that the cricketer need not request permission from the PCB and could exit the bio-secure bubble upon approval from the team management.

“However, he [Afridi] will have to undergo another three-day isolation and return two negative PCR tests for COVID-19 before entering the bio-secure bubble at any stage of the tournament,” he added.
