The Covid-19 pandemic has terrorised the entire world and brought the whole system down to it’s knees. There are mass casualties and the toll is ever rising. The sporting world has also faced the wrath of the highly mutant virus. All events have been postponed or cancelled and one can’t help but think that’s the right way to go.
In deeply saddening news, cricket has witnessed it’s first casualty of Covid-19 in the face of ex-Pakistani cricketer Zafar Sarfaraz. The 50 year old who was tested positive for Coronavirus passed away in Peshawar. He has been on a ventilator in an intensive care unit for the past 3 days.
Sarfaraz made his debut in 1988 and scored 616 runs from 15 first-class games for Peshawar. He had 96 runs from six one day games before hanging his boots. After retirement he went on to coach Peshawar U-19 and the senior Peshawar team in the mid-2000s. Here at Cric Crak we pay are condolences to the friends and family of the bereaved
