Shaheen Afridi undergoes appendix surgery ahead of England Tests

KARACHI (Monitoring Desk): Pakistan ace pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi on Sunday revealed that he underwent an appendectomy ahead of the home Test series against England, scheduled to commence on December 1.
Shaheen, who had been advised two weeks of rehabilitation in light of his knee injury, which he sustained in the recently-concluded ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Final, has now undergone appendix surgery in a local hospital.
Taking to Twitter, the left-arm pacer shared a picture of himself resting on a hospital bed and informed about his surgery, while also urging his fans to pray for his speedy recovery.
“Had an appendectomy today but Alhumdulillah feeling better. Remember me in your prayers,” wrote Shaheen.
It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan will lock horns with England in a three-match home Test series from December 1 to 21.
Consequently, England’s Test squad for the tour is anticipated to land in the country on November 27, while the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is yet to announce the squad for the series.
