- Shoaib Malik’s car crashes into truck parked outside NHPC in Lahore
- Sports car sustains damages to the front side
- 38-year-old skipper has yet to comment on the matter
LAHORE: Shoaib Malik is “perfectly all right” after his car on Sunday crashed into a truck parked outside the city’s National High-Performance Centre (NHPC) when the former cricket captain departed the Pakistan Super League (PSL) draft.
“It was just a happenstance accident and Almighty has been extremely Benevolent,” Shoaib Malik wrote on Twitter a couple of hours after the crash that had fans worrying for the cricket star.
“Thank you to each one of you who’ve reached out. I am deeply grateful for all the love and care,” he added.
While the veteran all-rounder cricketer was reportedly safe, his sports car sustained damages to the front side when it hit the truck near a restaurant close to the NHPC.
Geo News‘ Sohail Imran, who heard the crash, quoted eyewitnesses as saying Malik exited the NHPC at high speed but was unable to control his car, which ended up skidding on the road and hitting the truck outside.
Eye-witnesses confirmed that the cricketer was driving at high speed. He was in good spirits after the accident, they said.
A local media outlet quoted an eyewitness as saying the former cricket captain “requested me to not make” a video while he was sitting in the car after the crash.
