Afridi took to social media on Thursday evening to share an update on his health.

“I have unfortunately tested positive but have no symptoms at all. InshALLAH hope to recover soon, test negative and rejoin QG as soon as possible. Good luck to all teams in #HBLPSL7 I’m committed to giving it my all in my last PSL edition,” Shahid Afridi tweeted.
