Video: Shaheen Afridi Sends Rahmanullah Gurbaz To Hospital With a Toe-Crushing Yorker
Pakistan fans desperately waited for the return of “The Eagle” to the playing XI following his injury, which had sidelined him for several weeks.
Shaheen Afridi made his comeback to professional cricket in the warm-up match against England. However, he couldn’t entertain the fans as he bowled only two overs.
In today’s match against Afghanistan, the left-arm pacer did exactly what everyone expected. His two wickets in as many overs put Pakistan on top, dismissing both the openers.
Shaheen Afridi’s toe-crushing yorker to Rahmanullah Gurbaz sent him to a nearby hospital. The Afghan batter was unable to walk back to the pavilion and the physios had to give him some treatment.

The Afghan batter was taken to the nearby hospital for scans to make sure he was alright. The match was called off due to uninterrupted rain.
