As far as I know he is doing everything about staying there and coordination with doctors,” Shahid Afridi talked to Samaa TV.
“The PCB is also pleased to advise and update that Shaheen Shah Afridi is making excellent progress in his rehabilitation in London and is on track to make a full recovery in time for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Australia 2022.
