Posted On / /

Pakistan batsman Asif Ali’s two-year-old daughter Noor Fatima, who was fighting stage four cancer, died at a hospital in the United States. Asif Ali is expected to leave the tour of England following the death of his daughter.

Earlier on Sunday, the 27-year-old Ali scored a 17-ball 22 during Pakistan’s 54-run defeat against England in the fifth and final ODI at Headingley in Leeds. With this win, England also clinched the series 4-0 after the opening match was washed out due to rain.

Ali featured in every game of the series, scoring two fifties with a career best of 52 in the third ODI at The Rose Bowl in Bristol.

Fraternity comes in support of Asif and his family

The cricketing fraternity was soon behind Asif Ali after the news broke out. While he is now expected to be with his family and is known to have left England as well, Twitterverse has shown support to the cricketer in these tough times.

The likes of Dean Jones, Michael Clarke, Misbah Ul Haq, Mohammad Hafeez and many current and former cricketers have expressed their condolences for Asif Ali and his family via Twitter.
