Another major blow to Pakistan in the grip of the coronavirus is the Karachi plane crash. In the world of cricket, the push has not been less intense. Rumor has it that Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah died in the accident. Even a picture of his ‘corpse’ went viral through social media. Although the news is completely false, Yasir himself has confirmed it.
A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane crashed in Karachi on Friday, just before landing. Most of the passengers on the plane died in the tragic accident, Pakistani media reported. According to them, the death toll from the plane crash in a residential area has risen to 98, including passengers and civilians.
The plane, which left Lahore, tried to land at Jinnah International Airport in Karachi several times but failed. Rumors spread that Yasir was also on the wreckage. A post spread through social media, ‘Pakistani Test cricketer Yasir Shah has died in a plane crash in Karachi. According to BCC News, Yasir was on the plane at the time of the accident.
Since it was an internal flight, the rumors were absolutely hard to dispel. If a picture of his ‘corpse’ goes viral on him again, more stalks will grow in the buzz. Eventually he cut it all off Yasir himself. The 34-year-old leg-spinner confirmed on his Twitter account that he was not on the flight, “Thank God Almighty, I’m at home, I’m safe.” We pray for those who died in the plane crash. May Allah grant them Paradise. ‘
Earlier, it was confirmed that Yasir was not on board the plane. Two Pakistani media outlets, Geo and The Dawn, published a list of passengers on the flight from Lahore, but did not name Yasir. The Pakistani leg-spinner last played an international match against Bangladesh in February.
