Former Pakistan cricket team captain Shahid Afridi failed to cope-up with knee issue, depicting he would not be able to play World XI Charity match.
The 38-year-old took to Twitter saying he will be needing another three to four weeks to recover completely from his knee injury.
Went to see my doctor in Dubai, the knee hasnt recovered fully yet. I’ll need another 3-4 weeks. Hoping to regain full fitness after that, keep praying for me.
Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera were among the first set of players to confirm their participation for the ICC World XI in a T20I against the Windies last month.
The match is being staged to raise funds to rebuild and restore five major cricket venues in the Caribbean that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement.
