Knee injury ruled Afridi out of BBPL for one week

DHAKA Dhaka Platoon received a huge blow as their Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi sustained a knee injury during the last match against Chattogram Challengers in the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL).

After sustaining the injury, he returned to Pakistan and may come back on

January 6, if he recovers fully. Thereby he will miss the Dhaka's Sylhet part

matches of BBPL, said a team official of Dhaka Platoon.

Afridi received the injury while batting against Chattogram and as a

result he had to be used late during bowling. Dhaka eventually lost the match

by six wickets.

He sustained injury on his right knee and went back to Pakistan as he

is asked to take full rest. We are expecting him to arrive on 6th of January

if he recovers fully, Dhaka Platoon coach Mohammad Salahuddin said.

Meanwhile, an old video of Shahid Afridi appeared on social media on

Tuesday to bring him into news as he was seen confessing about breaking a TV

at his home after he saw his daughter trying to imitate an arti scene

performed on an Indian daily soap.

In the video, Afridi is asked by a host if he ever broke a TV in his

home, to which he replies: I smashed my TV once, because of my wife. These

daily soaps on Star Plus were quite popular then.

I had asked my wife to watch them alone and not with the kids. I saw one

of my kids performing 'arti' while watching a Star Plus show. I then smashed

the TV inside the wall.
