Shahid Afridi returns home from LPL due to personal emergency

Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi will leave the Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2020 and head home due to an emergency.

“Unfortunately I have a personal emergency to attend to back home. I will return to join back my team at LPL immediately after the situation is handled. All the best.”, the Galle Gladiators captain tweeted.

It is unclear when Afridi will return, but when he returns he will be allowed to play only after 3 days in quarantine as he had contracted Covid before.

Afridi’s absence will be a big blow for Galle Gladiators who have lost all 3 of their games and are in the bottom of LPL points table.
