I'll be cheering for the team from home and I'm sure @simadwasim will fill up for me #CPL18 #DreamBIGwidTallawahs https://t.co/zJ6C8mI22A

After sustaining the injury while playing for Karachi Kings during the PSL, Afridi turned out for Edmonton Royals in the Global T20 Canada league, besides captaining ICC World XI against West Indies in a T20 at Lord's in July. Afridi's only previous stint in the CPL was with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in 2015, during the tournament's third season.

The latest edition of CPL 2018 will commence on August 8, with the Trinbago Knight Riders taking on St Lucia Stars at Port of Spain. Jamaica Tallawahs, led by Andre Russel, will play their first match on August 10, against Knight Riders in the same venue.
