Pakistan are facing a lot of issues in their ongoing South Africa tour having lost the Test series only after the first two matches. They also missed one of their best Test batsmen on the tour in Haris Sohail who was ruled out due to his gradually worsening knee injury. However, the left-hander seems to be undergoing a lot of stress as he claimed of going through a spell of the black magic spell in the rainbow nation.
Moreover, after returning to Pakistan citing the injury reason, Sohail didn’t attend the rehabilitation camp and instead flew to Sialkot which is his home-town. This is not the first time that the cricketer has gone through such a phase. During Pakistan’s 2015 tour of New Zealand, he had changed his hotel room claiming the influence of supernatural forces and was ruled out later due to injury.
“Haris first told the management before returning home about his fear, and then, instead of joining rehabilitation camp on return, he went to his hometown Sialkot, citing the same reason,” the report of BOL News read. Moreover, it is also being understood that the team management wasn’t keen on disclosing Haris Sohail’s fear to the public as he was under a lot of mental stress.

Meanwhile, Haris Sohail was in sensational form in the whites in the lead up to South Africa tour. He had scored loads of runs against Australia and New Zealand in the UAE and had looked better among others in England as well. Though there was no guarantee about his performance in the ongoing series, Sohail’s presence would’ve definitely played a part as his confidence was high.
After a tragedic incident with him now, it remains to be seen when the cricketer makes a comeback into the international arena now.
