Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Medical Officer Dr Najeebullah Soomro says he has spoken to Shaheen and he is worried about his fitness, but he is a brave young man who has worked hard to serve his country and team. What is the commitment to return? Officer Dr. Najeebullah Soomro says that although Shaheen Afridi has worked a lot on his fitness in Rotterdam, he will need more time and is likely to return in October. Last year, during the ICCT 20 World Cup, in the match against India, Shaheen Afridi blew the cards of the traditional rival with his stormy bowling. Pakistan won that match by 10 wickets and set a new record.
