Pakistan Cricket Board’s response to Shahid Afridi’s statement

Pakistan, Six Sports

Injuries are parcel of any sport. Players had to remain careful and at times had to suffer. This is the case with a duo of Pakistan Cricket team. The duos are Shaheen Afridi and Fakhar Zaman. Normally the cricket board bears all the expenses of their medical treatment but allegations are raised against PCB. They have been alleged not to provide medical treatment costs to their own players. Former Pakistan Captain, Shahid Afridi reacted to this.

Pakistan Cricket Board on providing medical treatment cost.

Shaheen Afridi and Fakhar Zaman have undergone injuries for which they are unable to play. Fakhar Zaman had a right knee injury while playing in Asia Cup when he landed awkwardly while fielding. Shahin Afridi is also doing his rehabilitation after he sustained a knee injury. Big shocking news got revealed that they had to pay their medical expenses on their own.

Shahid Afridi’s statement:

“Shaheen has flown out to the UK on his own ticket, he is staying there on his own money, I arranged a doctor for him there, he contacted him there, the PCB is not doing anything in all this. As far as I know he is doing everything about staying there and coordination with doctors. “

Pakistan Cricket Board responded:

” The PCB is also pleased to advise and update that Shaheen Shah Afridi is making excellent progress in his rehabilitation in London and is on track to make a full recovery in time for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Australia 2022. It goes without saying that the PCB has always been and will continue to be responsible for arranging medical care and rehabilitation of all its players requiring any treatment.”

Pakistan Cricket Board updated the injury reports of Fakhar Zaman as well.

“Fakhar Zaman will depart for London on Friday to undergo rehabilitation. Fakhar had landed awkwardly on his right knee while fielding during the ACC T20 Asia Cup final in Dubai. As per the protocols, the PCB has scheduled his medical appointments with specialists who will be providing the best medical care for his rehabilitation. During his stay in London, the PCB will make all relevant logistical arrangements for Fakhar and he will remain under the supervision of the PCB Advisory Panel, which includes Dr Imtiaz Ahmad and Dr Zafar Iqbal, who are also treating Shaheen Shah Afridi.”
