Now Pakistan’s legendary fast bowler Aaqib Javed has given a strange statement about Shaheen Afridi, due to which Pakistani fans can get angry with him. Aaqib Javed has advised Shaheen not to risk his injury and stay out of the World Cup. Aaqib Javed believes that a cricketer like Shaheen is more valuable than the World Cup.

Aaqib Javed said, ‘There are two types of injuries. One due to fatigue and the other… Shaheen got injured as he dived while fielding and then rested. In such cases, you first get rid of the pain completely and then the rehab begins. The medical team will definitely go through everything before declaring him fit for selection. Fast bowlers like Shaheen Afridi are not born everyday. My advice is that even if this World Cup is not played, then Shaheen has more value than the World Cup.

Shaheen was hurt in the right knee

Shaheen injured his right knee while fielding during the Galle Test against Sri Lanka. Due to this injury, Shaheen Afridi was advised rest for 4-6 weeks. Later Shaheen Afridi went to London for treatment. The special thing is that former captain Shahid Afridi had said that Shaheen has come to London for treatment with his own money. There was a ruckus after this statement of Shahid.

Shahid Afridi had told Sama TV, ‘Sometimes there are a lot of difficulties. Now let me talk about Shaheen only. No matter who is Shaheen’s place. Now that boy himself went to England. Went on my ticket and stayed there on my own money. He made contact with the doctor. From here I arranged the doctor. From there he contacted the doctor. They are doing everything themselves. PCB is not doing anything in this. That’s all those things. It’s not like if someone gets hurt…’

Then Rameez Raja retaliated

Now Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Rameez Raja has hit back at Shahid Afridi. Rameez Raja, during a conversation on his YouTube channel on Friday, has called this whole matter unfortunate. Raja reminded how the PCB’s medical team worked day and night when Mohammad Rizwan fell ill during last year’s T20 World Cup.
