One of the shocking news comes out from the Afghanistan camp regarding the injury of Mohammad Shahzad. The Afghanistan swashbuckling opening batsman Shahzad was sent back home citing the Knee Injury but the opening batsman reveals that he wasn’t injured.
In the recent reports, they stated that Mohammad Shahzad suffered the knee injury during Afghanistan’s warm-up match against Pakistan last month. While he took the field in initial 2 matches of the World Cup against Australia and Sri Lanka, an aggravation of the knee injury has forced the 32-year-old out of the World Cup.
As a replacement, they named the 18-year old Ikram Ali Khan, who is set to join the team. The team played with new openers in the game against New Zealand, where they gave a good start but failed to capitalise on it.
I have no problem or injury – Mohammad Shahzad
Meanwhile, Mohammad Shahzad made a sensation revelation by saying that the board of Afghanistan has wanted to make him stay out of the team. Shahzad also stated that he has been fully fit and there was no knee injury, which was said to the reporters by the board.
Further, he went on to add saying that the decision was taken by the Afghanistan board without even consulting him. The news was spread out by the senior sports Journalist Ibrahim Momand via his Twitter panel.
