Shahid Afridi has recently shared that Lahore Qalandars’ skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi was suffering from fever during the Qualifier his side played against Multan Sultans in the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
"Shaheen has been suffering from a fever for the last couple of days, and he also played yesterday's match with the temperature,” Afridi said while talking to a local news channel.
“I think if you have a fever, you shouldn't play, but he [Shaheen] wanted to win the match and then rest until the final,” he added.
Shaheen has claimed 14 wickets in 10 matches of the ongoing season of the tournament at an economy rate of 8.61.
It must be noted that the Sultans defeated the Qalandars by 84 runs at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Wednesday.
With the win, the Sultans booked their spot in the final of the PSL 8 for the third consecutive year.
Chasing a target of 161 runs, the Qalandars were rolled over for only 76 runs in 14.3 overs.
While the Sultans qualified for the final, Qalandars will now play the second eliminator against the winning team of the first eliminator.
