Afridi, last month, had announced on social media that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and had urged his followers to pray for him.
"I have been feeling unwell since Thursday; my body has been aching badly. I have been tested and unfortunately I'm covid positive. Need prayers for speedy recovery, Inshallah. #COVID19 #pandemic #hopenotout #staysafe #stayhome," Afridi had tweeted on June 13.
Putting aside his rivalry with Afridi, former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir had wished him speedy recovery after the former Pakistan captain had made his coronavirus result public.
"Nobody should be infected with this virus. I have political differences with Shahid Afridi but I want him to recover as soon as possible," Gambhir had told Aaj Tak.
"But more than Afridi I want every person infected in my country to get well as soon as possible."
