Karachi: A young cricketer from Hyderabad in southern Sindh province attempted suicide after he was not selected for his home team in the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Inter-City Championship.
Fast bowler Shoaib slit his wrist and on Tuesday his family members rushed him to the hospital in a critical condition.
A family member said that Shoaib was confined to his room due to depression after his coach did not select him in the trials for the Inter-City Championship.
We found him unconscious in the bathroom of his room with his wrist slit and immediately rushed him to the hospital where his condition is still critical, the family member said.
In February 2018, Muhammad Zaryab, an Under-19 cricketer from Karachi, committed suicide by hanging himself at his home after being dropped from the city’s Under-19 team.
