Shahid Afridi, the Pakistan allrounder, is likely to miss the four-nation Twenty20 tournament in Canada next month due to a wrist injury. He is also attending to his wife, who has been unwell for a while.
"We will consider Afridi for the tournament only when he is fit," Salahuddin Ahmed, the chief selector, said on Saturday. An MRI report on his wrist is expected on Monday.
He also missed Pakistan's eight-day training camp at the Army School of Physical Training in Kakul which concluded yesterday. His selection for the tournament will depend on his availability for a series of practice games in Lahore before the team leaves for Toronto.
Canada, West Indies and Bangladesh are the other teams in the series which runs between August 14 and 17, at the Maple Leaf North-West Ground in King City.
