Lahore: Former Pakistan skipper Shoaib Malik survived a horrific crash as his sports car rammed into a truck in Lahore on Sunday late evening (January 09). The 38-year-old all-rounder suffered a scary accident just after attending the recently-concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL) draft event for the upcoming sixth edition at the High-Performance Centre in Lahore.
Regarded as one of the finest all-rounders to have graced the gentlemen’s game, Malik was returning to his hotel post the PSL draft event when he lost control of his sports car and it banged into a truck, parked nearby a local restaurant.
Meanwhile, Malik took to his official Twitter handle and shared his update. He wrote:
“I am perfectly all right everybody. It was just a happenstance accident and Almighty has been extremely Benevolent. Thank you to each one of you who’ve reached out. I am deeply grateful for all the love and care.
Sharing more details on the accident, an eyewitness stated, “Shoaib Malik sahab was sitting in it.” He added, “He was present on the spot and I tried to take a video of him but he requested me not to.”
