New Delhi: In a tragic incident, Pakistan pacer Junaid Khan on Thursday lost his first child. 

The 24-year-old termed it as the worst day of his life.

While the reason behind the death of the baby was not revealed by the cricketer, Junaid did state that his wife was stable and on the road to recovery.

Junaid has represented Pakistan in 22 Tests, 9 T20Is and 52 ODIs, picking up 157 scalps in total.

Several cricketers wrote to the left-arm pacer, expressing solidarity and support.

 

In the last couple of days, social media was abuzz with rumors about Shahid Afridi's daughter's death after an image of a girl wearing a pink dress, covered by rose petals went viral.

Three weeks ago, Afridi had posted a photograph with his daughter inside a hospital.

He also wrote a message 'Get Well Soon ASMARA ! Ameen'

However, soon after the news of her death started going viral, it was learnt Asmara was hospitalized and underwent a surgery, but she is very much alive and recovering.
