During the World Cup final, Shaheen landed awkwardly on his right knee while taking a catch to dismiss batter Harry Brook, resulting in a five-wicket defeat for Babar Azam. He aborted his third over – the 15th of the innings – after the first ball.
After being sidelined for 12 weeks following a knee injury suffered in a Test match against Sri Lanka in July, the 22-year-old’s performance in the final raised concerns about his long-term prospects.
According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Shaheen had been advised two weeks of rehabilitation following impact during fielding.
The National High-Performance Centre has said Shaheen will undergo a rehabilitation and conditioning program, which will strengthen his knee for a few days.
Shaheen’s return to international cricket would be subject to the medical staff’s approval and the completion of the rehabilitation programme.
