New Delhi. The 30-year-old sister of left-handed batsman Shan Masood, who has played 25 Tests for Pakistan, has passed away. He gave information about this by tweeting. Shan is currently participating in Pakistan’s National T20 Cup. Because of this, he could not even come to bid his last farewell to his sister. Apart from former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, PCB chairman Rameez Raja, many players from Pakistan have expressed grief over the death of Shaan’s sister. Shaan was very close to his sister. This can be gauged by reading his tweet, which he has done after the death of his sister.
Shaan shared an old picture of himself with sister and wrote that Mishu you were the most precious thing in my life and I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye, I will miss you a lot but I know God take you to a better place went. Please pray for my sister’s soul.
Earlier, in an interview with ESPN Cricinfo, Masood had revealed that his sister Mishu was suffering from a rare genetic disease. Masood had told that due to illness his sister could not develop mentally. However, his physical development was fine.
My sister was special: Shaan
Shaan further told in the interview that I do not think there is much awareness in Pakistan about children like my sister. She was special. She was 30 years old, but she had not developed mentally and was like a newborn. He did not get a dependent visa. For this reason, she could not live in England with her parents. My mother used to come and go constantly. My father was running two houses at once to make sure that the sister was well.
Masood’s poor performance in the National T20 Cup
As far as Masood’s performance in the National T20 Cup is concerned, his bat in the league has remained silent so far. He has scored just 71 runs at an average of 11.83. However, his team Sindh is on the first position in the points table by winning 4 out of 6 matches.
