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.
