New Delhi: Corona virus is not taking the name of the havoc, everyday news of someone’s death is coming from somewhere. Many players have also been infected with the Corona virus so far and some have even died. Now another player has lost his life due to Covid 19 transition. Although this cannot be said with certainty, the skepticism remains. The players who died were from Pakistan and had played many first-class matches in Pakistan.
Former Pakistan first-class cricketer Riyaz Sheikh became the second professional player of the country on Tuesday, who died due to suspected corona virus disease. Sources have claimed that Riyaz Sheikh’s family buried him and did not even wait for the medical authorities to know the reasons for his death. Riyaz Sheikh was 51 years old. He took 116 wickets in 43 first class matches. He died on Tuesday morning.
Sources said his family buried his body in a hurry in the morning but his neighbors suspected that he was infected with Covid-19 and his family did not want to go through government procedures designed for patients who died due to the virus. Huh.
Let us tell you that earlier Pakistan opener Tawfiq Umar said that he has been found positive in the investigation of Corona virus infection, but his symptoms are not serious at all. Omar (38) was the first international player from Pakistan to be exposed to this dangerous virus. Earlier, the country’s first-class former cricketer Zafar Sarfaraz died on April 13 due to being infected with the Corona virus.
Fifty-year-old Sarfaraz played 15 first-class matches for Peshawar. Apart from these two, Majid Haq (Scotland) and Solo Anqueni (South Africa) have also been hit by the corona virus. Omar had told Geo News that after feeling a little sick last night, I got the test done the night itself, the result of which came positive. My symptoms are not serious at all. He had said that on the occasion of Eid this year, I am on segregation in my room. I am feeling well and hope to get well soon. I appeal to everyone to pray for my recovery. Omar has scored 2963 and 504 runs in 44 Tests and 12 ODIs for Pakistan respectively. He played his last match (Test) for Pakistan in 2014 against New Zealand in Dubai.
