Shaheen Afridi returns to Pakistan ahead of the West Indies series

Middlesex County Cricket Club stated on Thursday that Pakistan paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi will return home immediately ahead of next month’s one-day international series against the West Indies.

Shaheen was expected to leave the county side in early June to prepare for his international obligations, but the club stated it respected his desire to spend time with his family and friends.

After the three-match series against the Caribbean team, which begins on June 8, Shaheen, 22, will return to England to play for Middlesex in the T20 Blast’s later stages.

In three matches for the London-based squad in the County Championship’s second level, the towering left-arm fast has claimed 14 first-class wickets.

Middlesex head of men’s performance Alan Coleman said, “We have truly enjoyed having Shaheen here with us at Lord’s for the last month.”

“He’s fit right in with the club and has proven to be a valuable player on the field.” Working with him has been a pleasure.

“Shaheen has already represented his country in all three forms of the game this year, and he arrived at Middlesex after a demanding playing schedule, so we fully understand and support his request to return home and rest before serving his country.”
