Back Pain Forces Veteran Shahid Afridi to Call Time on PSL Career

 


Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has called time on his Pakistan Super League (PSL) career due to a persistent back problem, ending a seven-year association with the event.

The 41-year-old cricketer said that he took part in this season’s PSL only for the sake of fans.

“I was trying to sign off on a good note; my lower-back injury has been there for 15-16 years, and I have been playing with it. But now it has become so much that it has affected my groin, my knee and it goes down to extreme pain in my toes," Afridi said in a social media message.

Afridi, who began his career in international cricket with a then fastest 37-ball hundred, looked in pain at times but took three wickets in three PSL games for Quetta Gladiators.
