Pakistan right-arm pacer Umar Gul’s pinpoint accuracy at delivering a toe-crushing yorker remains unparalleled. At the peak of his abilities, Gul ruled the limited overs formats owing to his uncanny skill at exploiting reverse swing. Although the 35-year-old has not been a part of the national side of late, he is still adored and looked upon fondly by passionate fans.
Recently, Gul met one such exuberant fan and posed with him, handing him a custom Green jersey of Pakistan. However, the star bowler took to Twitter to share devastating news of the demise of his special fan just a few days after this memorable interaction.
Heartbroken by the terrible tragedy, Gul expressed his sadness in the deeply felt tweet, and asked his followers to make prayers for the departed soul. Such an instant affliction is certainly indicative of the fickleness of human life.
