Shahid Afridi, who got an injury during Asia Cup 2014, will not be able to go to the event with team.
“He is likely to join the Green Shirts after two to three days in Bangladesh,” sources revealed.
Boom Boom trigered a wave of fame and popularity after hitting back to back sixes against arch rival India in the tournament.
He will also miss the warm up match against New Zealand before the mega event of the cricket.
“Afridi has informed team management about his absence from the warm up match,” sources further said.
Hopes are high about Afridi and Pakistan Cricket Team that they could upset the tournament with striking performances. The current performances from Green Shirts are also alarming for rest of the tough teams like Sri Lanka, Australia and South Africa.
