Shahid Afridi Misses the flight to Sri Lanka for the LPL 2020
The Sri Lankan Premier League (LPL) is losing one cricketer after another due to injury and coronavirus. This time Shahid Afridi is missing the start of the tournament due to strange reasons. Shahid Afridi was supposed to play for Galle Gladiators from the beginning. But Shahid Khan Afridi misses the flight to Sri Lanka and will miss the first two matches of the LPL 2020 tournament.
Afridi was scheduled to join the team two days ago. Shahid Afridi missed the flight from Pakistan to Sri Lanka and is now unable to arrive before Wednesday. Afridi confirmed on Twitter that he missed the flight to Colombo. However, Galle forbade the supporters to worry. He said that he will reach Sri Lanka very soon.

Afridi will not be able to enter the field soon after his arrival. After the first three days of self-quarantine, you will have to wait a few more days to enter the bio-bubble. This means you will miss at least the first two matches of the tournament, which starts on November 26. Earlier, Lasith Malinga had removed his name from Galle on the pretext of preparation. The team played a big push without Afridi. Another foreigner Sarfaraz Ahmed is also unable to play due to the opportunity to tour New Zealand. For now, Vanuka Rajapaksa will be the captain of Galle.
