Star All-rounder Shahid Afridi will not be able to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) due to a back injury, Pakistan Cricket Board said on Monday. Pakistan’s premier domestic T20 league will be reinstated in Abu Dhabi next month, which was postponed in March as several players and support staff in six franchises were found to be Kovid-19 positive.

Afridi, who represented Multan Sultans in four of the league’s five matches in Karachi, scored just three runs in two innings and took two wickets in 15 overs. He has a low back pain while training in Karachi. Doctors were asked to relax completely after the test. “Unfortunately I have been advised to rest and my team cannot go with Multan Sultan,” Afridi said in a statement.

Notably, the league was postponed on March 4 this year after players in the PSL received a case of coronavirus infection. 14 games of the tournament were played before the postponement. The remaining 20 matches of the PSL were postponed in March, with the PCB scheduled to host in Karachi from June 1 to 20. But considering the status of the Kovid-19 in the country, it was decided to have it in the UAE.
