U19 cricketer Muhammad Zaryab committed suicide

A Karachi-based cricketer Muhammad Zaryab committed suicide after alleged heartbreak over non-selection in an Under-19 cricket team.

Muhammad Zaryab was the son of Former international cricketer Aamer Hanif. He hanged himself from a piece of rope

Talking to a known publication, Hanif, who represented Pakistan in five ODIs in the 90’s, revealed that his son took his life because of the injustices he faced in cricket.

“What my son has done, or what he faced, I hope no other player has to go through this,” said Hanif.

“He was pressurised too much while playing matches at the U19 level. He was disappointed and left all cricket behind and went into a deep depression. I tried to motivate him but he did this due to the injustices and mistreatment he faced at the U19 level,” he added.

Zaryab’s funeral prayers will be offered today.
