Pakistan cricket team faces a setback in Srilanka series
Pakistan's leading pacer Shaheen Afridi is likely to be rested for the second Test match against Sri Lanka due to injury concerns.
The pacer suffered an injury in the first Test match while fielding on Day 4 of the Test match at Galle.
Shaheen was taken to the hospital for an MRI scan. Sources claim that, after receiving the results, it was concluded that his injury is not serious, but no risks will be taken in terms of his fitness.
Shaheen Afridi has led Pakistan from the front in all formats and his participation remains critical to Pakistan's chances across the board.
