Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Irfan’s mother passed away on Monday.
Irfan, who at present is on tour to Australia, and is part of the Pakistan squad for the upcoming five-match ODI series against the hosts, was informed of his mothers death during a practice session.
Irfan will take the first flight back home and will probably miss out on matches of the Australia series, reported local media.
Pakistan has already lost the three-match Test series against the hosts.
Whereas, Irfan departure would come as a major blow for the side looking for some redemption, as they face-off against the Aussies, in ODIs with first match to begin on Friday in Brisbane.
