Pakistan fast-pacer and bowler Mohammad Irfan puts an end to all the fake rumors regarding his death. The 38-year old cricketer is known for being the tallest person to play first-class cricket at 7ft 1in (2.16 m). He confirmed via a tweet on Twitter that he was well and all the false reports regarding his death were “baseless”. On Sunday, 21 June, many fans of the cricketer starting tweeting regarding Mohammad Irfan’s death in a car accident. But thankfully, now, he has confirmed that he’s perfectly fine. Also, below is the tweet shared by the cricketer on Twitter:
Some social media outlets have been spreading baseless fake news about my death in a car accident. This has disturbed my family & friends beyond words, and I have been receiving endless calls on this. Please refrain from such things. Also, there was no accident and we are well.
The confusion most probably was created due to a reason. The reason was that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the death of a deaf cricketer Mohammad Irfan on Sunday due to a stomach infection. People confused the other cricketer with Mohammad Irfan and that’s how the rumor arose.
The yet tallest first cricket player last represented Pakistan in a T20 International match against Australia in November. Mohammad Irfan has till now played 60 ODIs, 22 T20Is, and 4 Tests. He has taken 109 International wickets in total.
