Shaheen Shah Afridi said about T20 World Cup 2022, if I was not injured, we could have won
Afridi said in a conversation that his knee is “back to 100 per cent now”. On pace, he further said that everyone has a point of view about it, but I am feeling good.
The year 2022 was not a good one for Pakistan’s left arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi. He was kept out of the field due to frequent injuries. He played only 16 international matches last year. During the Test match against Sri Lanka, Afridi suffered a ligament tear in his right knee while diving for the boundary at Galle. However, Shaheen Shah Afridi has made a good comeback on the field. Even though there has been a slight decrease in his pace, but he is successful in taking wickets. He has now said that his knee is completely fine now. He has taken important wickets in recent matches, such as 19 in PSL, six in T20Is against New Zealand and eight in ODIs.
Afridi said in a conversation that his knee is “back to 100 per cent now”. Talking about pace, he further said that everyone has an opinion about it, but I am feeling good. You see yourself, Even if you are bowling at 110 kmph and taking wickets you feel good. I took wickets. I gave my 100 per cent in the field, it matters more. Speed doesn’t matter that much but if If there is a decline, it will improve over time.
Speaking on his injuries, Afridi acknowledged the impact they had on him at crucial moments in his career. In the T20 World Cup final against England, he injured his knee while taking a crucial catch, preventing him from continuing to bowl. Afridi says that his presence could have changed the result as Pakistan lost the final. “Obviously, every player dreams of winning the World Cup for their country and I still remember 2021, how it ended,” Afridi said. He said that in this tournament, if I had not got injured at such a crucial moment, maybe we could have won. Maybe if I stay fit and bowl.
