Afridi rushes home to ailing father

KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi rushed home after his father, Sahibzada Fazalur Rehman, suffered a heart attack and was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit at the Aga Khan Hospital yesterday.
Afridi, who was representing Hampshire in the ongoing Friends Life Twenty20 Championship, headed back immediately after hearing the news and was expected to arrive in Karachi last night.
The all-rounder, who also missed the initial stages of his county stint due to a rift with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that revoked his NOCs to play in foreign leagues, is also doubtful to play Hampshire’s remaining matches. The former captain has so far played seven matches for Hants and was scheduled to return on July 16.
Afridi’s father is battling a prolonged illness and also underwent a surgery in the US in May. He was kept on ventilator till the filing of this report.
