Not Shahid Afridi but Pakistani pacer Junaid Khan loses his baby

, 12:30 PM IST

New Delhi: It was a painful day for Pakistan’s pacer Junaid Khan as he lost his first child on Thursday.

The 24-year-old bowler had earlier shared the news about his wife’s hospitalisation on social media yesterday, asking everyone to pray for her speedy recovery.

The reason behind the child’s death is yet to be revealed by the cricketer.

Just two days back, social media was abuzz with Shahid Afridi’s youngest daughter’s death but that turned out to be fake.

Junaid is currently playing in the ongoing Pakistan Cricket Cup 2016 for Balochistan.
