Pakistan cricketer Hafeez has the rapid cure from coronavirus
My friend feels Hafeez knows how to get rid of the deadly coronavirus in a jiffy after being tested positive by the Pakistan Cricket Board. Hafeez turned negative within a few hours and so he believes that scientists should study him to determine the cure for the virus instead of letting him play cricket in England.
Weekes: A cricketer who became a legend helping groundsmen
Everton Weekes, whom I met in Barbados during the 2007 World Cup, has a tale of hardship with no money to buy a cricket ball or get coaching, but he learned the game by watching great cricketers. He became a master of ground shots due to lack of space to practice and earned the sobriquet ‘Butcher’ for his punishing batting style filled with ground shots only.
Australian cricketer and pacer Neil Hawke used his fighting spirit as a sportsman to withstand 12 cardiac arrests and 30 surgeries. During his playing days, he withstood a shoulder injury from football but remained a match-winner.
