Pakistan`s Wicketkeeper Zulqarnain goes missing in Dubai
08 November, 2010
DUBAI: Pakistani cricket team wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider went missing from hotel room in Dubai this morning, our sources reported Monday. Sources said he was last seen at 6:30am while leaving his room.
The wicketkeeper said in his Facebook post he was leaving cricket as someone gave him bad message on losing in last match.
The wicketkeeper words are: ‘leaving pakistan cricket because get bad msg fr 1 man for lose the match in last game.’
Also, a message from Zulqarnain’s mobile received on cellphone of a friend and our sources correspondent Sohail Imran, said he is leaving the cricket as someone is giving him murder threats.
The SMS received on Sohail Imran’s mobile phone said, ‘Match haar jao’ (Lose match.)
In his second MSM, the cricketer said he is leaving for England; however, this claim sounds absurd, as team management has passports of all the cricketers.
Talking to our sources, Zulqarnain’s brother Aqil Haider said his brother talked to the family last night, urging all to pray to Allah for his brother.
Omar Akmal will play as wicketkeeper in today’s match.
Team management announced three changes in the squad for today’s match. Zulqarnain Haider’s name is not included. Muhammed Yousuf, who flew shortly to Dubai, has been included in the squad for strengthening batting line.
A Source said Shahid Aslam saw the wicketkeeper leaving his room at around 6am; he intercepted Haider, who told he is leaving to receive his relatives and would be back after some time. However, he was not seen around again.
