Afridi was ruled out of the Asia Cup after being advised a 4-6 weeks rest by the medical team following an injury to the right knee ligament. He had copped an injury while fielding during the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle in July. Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Haris and Shahnawaz Dahani have been named as the three travelling reserves.
