Shan Masood’s sister passes away, criketeres offer their condolences

Pakistani cricketer Shan Masood’s sister Meesha passed away on Saturday. Former and current players offered their condolences to Shan.

Shan Masood took to Twitter where he shared his sister’s photo with a heartfelt note about her demise.

In the tweet, he acknowledged his sister as “the most precious thing in my life” and regretted that he never got to say goodbye to her.

“I will miss you so much but I know God has taken you to a better place. Please pray for my sister’s departed soul,” he added.

Former Pakistan cricketer and Balochistan coach Faisal Iqbal tweeted his condolences.

PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja prayed to God to give strength to Masood and his family to bear the loss.

All-rounder Anwar Ali offered his condolences as well.

Former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and opening batsman Abid Ali both condoled Meeshu’s demise.

Earlier in an interview with ESPNcricinfo, he had spoken about his sister’s treatment.

He had revealed that Meeshu had a rare chromosomal issue that had severely hampered her development.

“I don’t think there’s a lot of awareness in Pakistan about children like my sister,” Masood had said. “She’s a special child. Her physical development is completely fine. She’s 30 years old, but mentally she hasn’t developed one bit,” he had said.

“She’s like a newborn child. She couldn’t get a dependent visa, she couldn’t fly to England and live with my parents, so my parents were quite divided in that my mother had to keep going back and forth and my dad was running two houses at once, just to make sure my sister was fine. I just hope she realizes what we do and that it makes her proud as well,” he had said.
