Former Pakistani cricket star Shahid Afridi has quit his career in the Pakistani Super League due to his back problem. The cricketer further added that he’s going to take part in the season’s PSL only for the fans.

Shahid Afridi played for Pakistan six years ago after they suffered a back injury during the training session and tested Covid positive before the season started. On his return, he scored 67 runs for Islamabad United. He played the final match of his PSL career for Quetta Gladiators against United on Sunday.

Apart from that, he also played for Peshawar Zalmi, Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings in the PSL. Afridi took 47 wickets at an average of 26.51 in his PSL career. He scored 459 runs at a strike rate of 150.8.


“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. I tried to cope with it but can’t tolerate the pain anymore. After all, when you have good health, you have the world with you. I will go back and undergo rehabilitation on my fitness. There is cricket coming up… So I will soon return in front of my fans again,” he added.
