The 38-year-old all-rounder suffered a frightening accident shortly after competing in the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL) for the upcoming sixth edition at the High-Performance Center in Lahore.

Malik was considered one of the best all-rounders to grace the men’s game and returned to his hotel after the PSL draft when he lost control of his sports car and it crashed into a truck parked near a local restaurant was.

According to a report on SAMAA TV, Malik was trying to drive past Wahab Riaz’s car when the accident occurred. While he did his best to avoid an unfortunate mishap, he escaped unharmed, but the front of his expensive sports car was completely destroyed. Videos of this were recorded by viewers nearby.

In the meantime, Malik took his official Twitter handle and shared his update. He wrote, “I’m perfectly fine. It was just a random accident and the Almighty was extremely benevolent. Thank you to each of you who tried. I am deeply grateful for all the love and care …” “

Malik, who announced his ODI resignation shortly after Men in Green’s unforgettable 2019 World Cup campaign, is still an active cricketer when it comes to the shortest format of the game. In order to strengthen his position in the national team for the T20 World Championship in 2021, the experienced all-rounder will strive to deliver all cylinders in the coming PSL season. He was taken over by the Peshawar Zalmi franchise in the Platinum category for PSL 6.
