NHPC bowling coach Umar to supervise Shaheen’s rehab in UK

LAHORE: National High-Performance Center (NHPC) bowling coach Umar Rasheed will fly to the United Kingdom (UK) to supervise the rehabilitation and the bowling revival of ace pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi.

Shaheen, who has been in the UK for the rehabilitation of his knee injury, which he sustained during the Green Shirts’ first Test against Sri Lanka, is now soon likely to start bowling under the supervision of Umar.

According to the details, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decided to send Umar to England to oversee everything, including the preparations for Shaheen to begin bowling in the nets.

For Umar travelling to the UK, the PCB has already applied for his Visa following his return from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

It is pertinent to mention here that the NHPC coach will also accompany the men in green in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
