Pakistan cricket team former captain and husband of Indian tennis star Sania Mirza, Shoaib Malik, revealed that he was involved in a car accident in the city of Lahore, Punjab province, but thankfully unhurt.
The accident took place shortly after he left the Pakistan Super League (PSL) Draft ceremony at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) headquarters.
His sports car reportedly skid on the road and smashed into a truck parked outside the National High Performance Centre. His manager told an English daily that he was unable to see it due to the fog.
As pictures of a damaged car started making rounds on social media, Malik took to Twitter to assure worried fans that he was unhurt and doing okay.
"I am perfectly all right everybody. It was just a happenstance accident and Almighty has been extremely Benevolent. Thank you to each one of you who've reached out. I am deeply grateful for all the love and care," he posted.
Many flocked to wish the cricketer well.
Malik had admitted last year that he intended to quit one-day cricket after the World Cup and he followed through with that plan after Pakistan's 94-run win at Lord's.
