Soon after Shahid Afridi had reached his half-century opposite Bangladesh on Tuesday, Pakistan’s physio had run out to a margin to attend to him. Struggling to pierce after that, Afridi was run out. Three days later, he was still walking cautiously when Pakistan lerned on a eve of a Asia Cup final opposite Sri Lanka.
“Shahid Afridi has a class one hip flexor strain,” their manager Zakir Khan said. “Our physio is operative on him. He’s been given rest and treatment.
“Hopefully tomorrow, before a start of a compare we will know a finish conditions about Afridi. He has responded good to a treatment. We are all analysing and assessing his situation. Tomorrow we will take a final preference about Afridi.”
Afridi isn’t a usually Pakistan actor with a aptness issue.
“We have small bit of niggles and strains to Ahmed Shehzad who was struggling with his shoulder,” Zakir said. “He’s also responding good to treatment. He’s entrance adult well. Umar Gul was small bit unbending though he’s also entrance out of it.”
Zakir combined that Sharjeel Khan, who had missed a Bangladesh diversion with a knee injury, was “nearly 98% fit. He batted and fielded during a nets and looked good today.”
From these comments, it seemed as if Sharjeel and Gul would substantially be entirely fit in time to play a final. Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s captain, didn’t yield too many clues to a odds of Afridi and Shehzad creation it.
“Obviously your categorical players make a disproportion to a side,” Misbah said. “We are, however, mentally strong. You might have seen [Fawad] Alam played unequivocally good in deficiency of Sharjeel Khan. The certainty turn is really high. All a members of a group have been behaving well. There is a will to win. We wish to get them in a side though during a same time we’re assured that even if they don’t play, we have a boys in a dais who are able and assured to win a diversion for us.”
