Hampshire have confirmed Shahid Afridi will not be returning to the Ageas Bowl for this season’s Friends Life t20 campaign.

The Pakistani all-rounder, who starred heavily as the Royals made it to Finals Day last term, was set to rejoin the squad after playing for his national side during the club’s earlier matches.

But with continuing issues over acquiring the visa that Afridi needs to travel, both parties have decided to leave it for this season, with Hampshire having only three south group matches remaining.

The news comes after Giles White’s side moved into second place in the table with today’s comfortable seven-wicket victory over Surrey.
