The whole world is suffering from coronavirus pandemic and the sports industry also gets affected very badly from this pandemic. Today very bad news came from Pakistan where a first-class cricket player Zafar Sarfraz has died of Coronavirus after he found coronavirus positive on Tuesday 7 April 2020.
Zafar Sarfraz was a first-class cricketer for Pakistan from 1988 to 1994 and List A cricket from 1990 to 1992. This left-handed batter and slow left-arm orthodox bowler played first-class cricket for more than 6 years and made 616 runs from 15 first-class games for Peshawar.
Zafar also started cricket coaching in Peshawar, Pakistan after getting retired from first-class cricket in 1994 for both the senior and the Under-19 Peshawar teams.
He was the brother of late Pakistan international cricketer Akhtar Sarfraz, who went on to play four ODIs between December 1997 and October 1998, scoring 66 runs in four innings.
Definitely this is big a loss for Pakistan cricket and his family. He was found COVID-19 positive on 7th April and died today Tuesday, 14th April 2020.
