Shaheen Afridi is out of action for the next four to six weeks as he suffered a knee injury during the first Test against Sri Lanka last month and because of that, he will miss the upcoming Asia Cup T20 tournament. But despite being ruled out of the competition, the star pacer has traveled with the team in the UAE and is staying with the team.
