Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has withdrawn from this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) in order to recover from a knee injury.
Afridi, who was supposed to represent the Jamaica Tallawahs, suffered the injury while playing for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Despite this, it didn’t stop him from captaining an ICC World XI in a charity match against the West Indies at Lord’s last month and representing the Edmonton Royals in the inaugural edition of the Global T20 Canada tournament.
Due to my knee rehab I’ll have to sadly miss out this year’s #BiggestPartyInSport with the @JAMTallawahs
I’ll be cheering for the team from home and I’m sure @simadwasim will fill up for me #CPL18 #DreamBIGwidTallawahs https://t.co/zJ6C8mI22A

“Due to my knee rehab I’ll have to sadly miss out this year’s #BiggestPartyInSport with the @JAMTallawahs. I’ll be cheering for the team from home,” he said on Twitter.
Afridi has played in the CPL before as he turned out for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots back in 2015.
