KARACHI: Pakistan's all-rounder Shahid Afridi injured his back during a team practice and is unlikely to play in today's second One Day International (ODI) against Australia in Abu Dhabi, DawnNews reported.

Fast bowler Junaid Khan is expected to replace him.

Australia beat Pakistan in the first ODI by four wickets, taking a 1-0 lead in the three match series. The third match will be played in Sharjah on Monday followed by three Twenty20 internationals – all in Dubai – on September 5, 7 and 10.

I think Afridi lately playing politics in team.We have seen his attitude and argument with captain Misbah was quiet visible during Srilanka tour.Our media specially people like Yahya Hussaini are creating disunity in the team.Nobody should be above the team.We have to take lesson from England dealing with Petersen and India's handling of Harbajansing as an example.Pakistan has lot of talents. We should groom them along with seniors.
