Shaheen Shah Afridi has been advised to be in rehabilitation for 2 weeks

Shaheen Shah Afridi star Pakistani pace bowler has been advised to two weeks of rehabilitation after a scan on Monday morning confirmed there were no signs of an injury and the knee discomfort was likely “due to a forced knee flexion whilst landing”. Probably he may be rested for more than two weeks to get himself cured completely.

Afridi was, in any case, expected to sit out the England Test series, which starts on December 1 in Rawalpindi. That was part of a planned gradual return to the longer format from the original knee injury - which had kept him for three-and-a-half months - that he had also picked up while fielding during a Test against Sri Lanka in Galle in July.
