Former Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi has been found to be Corona positive. The 40-year-old former stylish all-rounder himself revealed this on his Twitter on Saturday. Afridi tweeted that, 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’

Afridi becoming the first high profile cricketer to be tested positive of corona. He played for Pakistan between 1996 and 2018, featuring in 27 Tests (1716 runs and 48 wickets), 398 ODIs (8064 runs and 395 wickets) and 99 T20 Internationals (1416 runs and 98 wickets).
