Boom Boom Afridi ruled out of PSL 6 due to back injury

LAHORE (92 News) - Multan Sultans’ star all-rounder Boom Boom Shahid Afridi has been ruled out of the Abu Dhabi leg of the Pakistan Super League 6 due to a back injury.

While training for the remainder of the PSL T20, I felt lower back pain & had to consult a doctor. Unfortunately I have been advised to rest and can no longer accompany my team @MultanSultans. I am heartbroken 💔 as I was practicing and training really hard.

The former Pakistan captain was training in Karachi for the upcoming PSL 6 matches when he experienced pain in his lower back following which he was examined by a doctor who has advised him complete rest.

Shahid, who appeared in Sultans’ four Karachi-leg matches, has been replaced by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s left-arm-spinner Asif Afridi who would be joining the Sultans squad in Abu Dhabi.
