Pakistan legendary all-rounder Shahid Afridi on Saturday confirmed that has tested positive for coronavirus. In a tweet, the former Pakistan captain wrote: “I’ve been feeling unwell since Thursday; my body had been aching badly. I’ve been tested and unfortunately I’m covid positive. Need prayers for a speedy recovery, InshaAllah [God willing].”

In his illustrious career, the 40-year-old represented Pakistan in 27 Tests, 398 One-day Internationals (ODIs) and 99 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).

Afridi is the fifth cricketer known to have contracted the aforementioned deadly bug.

South African first-class cricketer Solo Nqweni and Pakistan’s former opener Taufeeq Umar also tested positive for the same virus.

In April, former Pakistan first-class cricketer Zafar Sarfaraz passed away in Peshawar, aged 50, while in March Scotland’s Majid Haq had also revealed that he had tested positive.
