Afridi earlier made a return to international cricket with the series as the prolonged knee injury forced him to miss the Asia Cup before his return in the T20 World Cup in Australia. The left-handed pacers struggled to gain complete fitness and aggravated the injury further.

He remained out of action before he returned at the Pakistan Super League to lead his team Lahore Qalandars to a second successive title. Afridi took 19 wickets during the tournament as the fourth-highest wicket-taker behind young Pakistan pacers Ihsanullah and Abbas Afridi.
