Shahid Afridi says won’t play PSL final

Shahid Afridi says won’t  play PSL final

DUBAI: Star all-rounder Shahid Afridi who received an injury during the play off against Karachi Kings will not play the final of the Pakistan Super League in Lahore on Sunday.

In a video message posted on his facebook page, Afridi said "it was my desire to play PSL final in Lahore. But sorry, i can't. I won't be able to play because doctors have advised  10-day rest". It was my strong desire to play in my homeland, among my own people, but sometimes things are not in your control".

The former captain of the Pakistani team congratulated Zalmi for qualifying for the final and expressed his best wishes for Quetta Gladiators.

Afridi, who didn't speak much about the nature of his injury in the video message, needed 12 stitches as he injured his hand while fielding in the match against Karachi Kings. 

Afridi's right hand was enveloped in white bandages as he appeared in the video few hours after the match.

Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators will clash in the final of the PSL  in Lahore’s Qaddhafi Stadium on Sunday.

Zalmi qualified for the final after defeating Karachi Kings by 24 runs.

Though Shahid Afridi got a first-ball duck in the crucial match against Karachi Kings on Friday, his performance in the previous matches of the PSL helped his side to qualify for the play-off round of the tournament.
